Flow Measurements and Surface Water Studies
RMEA has conducted surface water studies for a variety of clients, from landowners who need to have their stream flow or irrigation flows measured, to large-scale evaluations of surface and groundwater hydrology, sometimes involving entire watersheds. Some of these projects have been related to fisheries, and problems associated with hydrologic alteration and irrigation diversions. RMEA also conducts Water Use Verification relative to water-right or delivery. RMEA staff have conducted flow measurements and headgate and ditch assessments for clients wishing to settle water-right disputes or delivery questions with neighbors or canal companies. Staff have also performed surface water measurements to verify managed recharge, and have installed automated transducers and performed rating measurements for continuous surface-water flow recording.
