Water Measurement
In 2000, the Water Resources Commission developed a strategy for improving water measurement statewide. The Commission's strategy focuses on diversions that have the greatest impact on streamflows in areas with the greatest needs for fish. The Department has developed a statewide inventory of significant diversions within high priority watersheds across the state and will be working to increase measurement at these diversions.
The Commission's water measurement strategy also set forth a plan to improve implementation of other measurement programs of the Department. These programs include measuring ground water points of appropriation; managing the well net program and water use reporting program; conducting ground water and surface water hydrology investigations; collecting pump test measurements; and producing streamflow records.
