Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District (MRGCD)
Irrigation Efficiency and Metering Program

The MRGCD Irrigation Efficiency and Metering Program was initiated in 2000 to evaluate the efficiency and metering network of the district.

The purpose of the efficiency portion of the program is to identify ways to improve the delivery of limited water supplies to the irrigated lands of the district and to identify opportunities for salvage of incidental depletions that could improve water availability throughout the Middle Rio Grande region.

The purpose of the metering portion of the study is to evaluate the status of the metering network of the district and to determine the need for installation of additional gaging stations to ensure that all diversions, returns and significant routing of water are measured.
