News Release


The Delta Conservation District (DCD) has funding available to assist with the purchase and installation of flow measurement devices to better manage agricultural irrigation water. The flow measurement devices will communicate information to water users via telemetry. The projects chosen for funding will serve as demonstration projects to help other agricultural water users determine if a similar kind of device would be useful for them.


Ditch companies, agricultural water user’s associations, unincorporated agricultural water groups, and individuals are eligible to apply. A wide variety of installations are eligible.

Examples include: 1) flow measurement device installed at a Parshall flume to transmit data to a ditch rider; 2) flow measurement device installed at a diversion to monitor the fluctuation of water in the creek; 3) flow measurement device installed in a buried pipe; 4) flow measurement device installed at an individual headgate on a ditch system; 5) flow measurement device that is one of several devices in a water distribution system.


The maximum amount that will be awarded per applicant is 50% of the cost or $1,550.00, whichever amount is less. The applications will be scored and then ranked according to score.


An informational meeting for anyone interested in learning about these devices, and/or this grant, is scheduled for January 31, 2023 9:00 am at the Delta USDA Building, 690 Industrial Blvd. Delta, CO. 


For detailed requirements and an application, please contact the Delta Conservation District at 970-399-8194 or
