Water Measuring and Reporting Shortcourse
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.
On December 3rd, 2018 (1:00-4:30 pm), UCCE Merced and the Merced County Farm Bureau will be sponsoring a Water Measuring and Reporting Short Course at the UCCE Cooperative Extension Classroom at 2145 Wardrobe Avenue, Merced, CA.

- Learn how to determine measurement equipment accuracy.
- Develop an understanding of measurement weirs.
