Checking Water Meters Now Could Help Avoid Penalties

September 14, 2020

While year-end water meter readings for irrigation and stockwater rights are not reported to the Division of Water Resources until March 1, 2021, checking meters now could eliminate the opportunity for significant penalties and possible suspension of the water right. If a water right is nearing its authorized quantity, stop pumping to avoid the risk of a penalty.   

For help exploring options that may provide flexibility in how the water right can be used for the remainder of the year, contact KLA.
