Senate Bill x7-7 (SBx7-7) requires documented volumetric accounting to individual turnouts for water deliveries. Section 597.3 of the bill lists two very different requirements for devices.  This document examines the requirements of SBx7 and the implications for agricultural irrigation districts.  The definitions and impacts of flow rate and volumetric accuracy are defined.  Example scenarios and solutions are offered, as well as descriptions of applicable devices.
