Document Description
YWA is currently implementing its Measurement Improvement Plan (MIP), which has a goal of providing increased surface water monitoring to support water management by YWA and its member units. A key component of the MIP is to better monitor surface water inflow and outflow at key locations within YWA’s service area to aide in planning and implementing tailwater and spillage recovery and reuse. YWA proposes to install two water level sensors and associated infrastructure on the WPIC (Proposed Project), one upstream of its confluence with Best Slough that would assist in determining inflow into the agricultural production area and one near its confluence with Bear River that would assist in determining outflow.
