Irrigation Assessment Program
As a reinstated program, the goal of the IAP is to monitor water levels and flow rates of wells throughout a crop's growing season. HPWD staff will then collect data from different commodity fields to determine differences between water use.

Field personnel test wells using an ultrasonic flow meter to determine an accurate flow rate through an irrigation system. HPWD also has in-line flow meters that can be loaned out upon request. In addition, leak detectors are available for municipal use.
