Introduction to Flow Measurement for Groundwater Management Districts course set

The Lower Rio Grande Valley Agricultural Water Conservation Demonstration Initiative (ADI) is offering a short course on the selection, installation, calibration, and operation of flow meters for groundwater pumping measurement on March 26-28, 2008, at the Flow Meter Calibration (FMC) Facility in Harlingen.

The course is designed for groundwater management, district managers, and employees. During the course, participants will have hands-on experience with measurement of flow and calibration of flow meters. The FMC has a large pipe manifold system that can be used to calibrate 6-inch to 24-inch diameter flow meters using a computer-controlled 10,000-gallon calibration tank and pumping system. The training will be held in the on-site classroom.

Early registration is due by March 19. The course is limited to 20 students and costs $500 per student. For more information, please contact Tom McLemore at 956.423.7015 or
