Pressurized irrigation systems are common throughout the Western United States. These systems generally use secondary water, or non-potable water that is pressurized to service individual property owners for irrigation of lawns and gardens. Many of these systems were originally installed by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and did not include metering since such technology did not exist at the time. As water becomes more scarce, it is important that water use for each customer be accurately measured. The problem with metering secondary water is that meters tend to get clogged with dirt and debris that are in secondary water. Weber Basin began installing secondary water meters in 2006 to study their effectiveness and see if they could handle water directly out of the river. Weber Basin has learned much about secondary water meters and which meters work well for this application after having installed over 3200 meters in their system. This presentation will discuss the issues, problems, and successes Weber Basin has had over the last 10 years of installing secondary water meters in urban areas.
