Meter Maintenance Reminder
NPNRD staff wants to remind those with flow meters that it is important to perform basic maintenance on your meter. If you haven’t done so already, make sure to drain the irrigation system because ice can destroy the meter. Remember that landowners are responsible for maintaining their flow meter to keep it in good working condition. If you have any questions or are experiencing problems with your meter, please contact Scott Schaneman at (308) 632-2749.
