California Water Boards- Measurement Regulation
Senate Bill 88 and Emergency Regulation for Measuring and Reporting the Diversion of Water
Are you Prepared?
♦ Do you know your monitoring requirements and deadline?
♦ Do you know your required frequency of monitoring?
♦ If you divert greater than 100 af per year your compliance installation deadline was July 1st of 2017! Your monitoring requirement is daily. Your system must be designed by a California engineer, licensed contractor or water professional. The State will waive this requirement via completion of approved UC Extension SB 88 workshop.
♦ If you divert greater than 10 af per year your installation deadline was January 1st this year! Your monitoring requirement is monthly. Your system need only be designed by a person with water experience, such as a farmer.

♦ You have a variety of options available to you in the manner in which you collect data. For small diverters, you can walk up and log a visual reading once monthly, for larger diverters daily readings are required. Options run the gamut of visual walk-up readings to an elaborate system of instrumentation and communications. Southland Water Technologies can present all options and help you make an informed selection.
