Measurement

In 2023, the County GSA offers three methods for growers to choose from for measurement:

  • Private meters (with pre-inspection both for installation and for flow calibration and a map of meters depicting what each well irrigates (submitted by 2/15/2023), along with monthly meter reads uploaded to our portal; see list at bottom of the page with potential vendors for inspections)
  • IrriWatch with daily access to the website
  • Land IQ with paper reports available 45-60 days after the end of each month

A choice will need to be made by 2/15/2023 by the grower or landowner from the three methods. You must choose the same method for every APN within your farm unit. If no choice is made, Land IQ will be the default option.
