Water Measurement and Reporting Course

12/03/18, 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Senate Bill 88 requires that all water right holders who have previously diverted or intend to divert more than 10 acre-feet per year (riparian and pre-1914 claims), or who are authorized to divert more than 10 acre-feet per year under a permit, license, or registration, to measure and report the water they divert.

This is an instructional course on measurement devices and methods administered by the University of California Cooperative Extension and includes a proficiency test which must be passed to be considered a qualified individual when installing and maintaining devices or implementing methods of measurement.
