District Accepting Applications for Meter Reimbursement
The North Plains Groundwater Conservation District Board of Directors voted to approve a contract with the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) that will make funds available to irrigators to offset up to half the equipment cost of water meters. "This is the next step in getting grant funds that were awarded to the district back in June into the hands of area producers to help them manage their water," said North Plains GCD, General Manager, Steve Walthour.
The district is now accepting applications from irrigators in the district for reimbursement on meters installed after June 26, 2014. The grant of $600,000 was awarded to the district by the TWDB on the basis that meters are an accepted and effective management tool for producers and for groundwater conservation districts. "If we use all these funds, we will request more and we will continue to request funds until there is no further demand or no more funds available," said Walthour.
