Idaho's department of water resources has issued order 67-5246 requiring water users that divert water in regulated areas from both ground and surface water sources to install approved flow meters. Data collected in these areas are reviewed and used by the Idaho Department of Water Resources (IDWR) for water management and distribution of water to senior water right holders. Recently IDWR has issued a blanket order in Water District 140 (known as the Oakley Valley water district) for all groundwater use that is greater than five acres of irrigation and or rates of flow on the water rights that are 0.24 cfs or greater (approximately 108 gpm). The order specifically requires Magnetic type flow meters as the standard meter that must be installed to measure water use in closed conduit applications.
Instrumart carries the following IDWR approved flow meters.
