Final Agricultural Water Measurement Regulations Adopted

The California Water Commission gave final approval to the agricultural water measurement regulation at its meeting July 6.

Developed under SBX7 7, the water conservation arm of the comprehensive water package of 2009, the regulations must provide for a range of options for agricultural water suppliers to measure the volume of water delivered to customers and comply with farm-gate delivery measurement requirements. The regulation takes effect immediately.

More details on the regulation’s development are available on the DWR website.
