WATER METER INFORMATION FORM FOR LARAMIE COUNTY
WHO IS REQUIRED TO METER AND REPORT THEIR GROUNDWATER PRODUCTION
When selecting a flow meter, consider the volume of water being produced annually, the well yield, and the discharge pipe diameter. Unless a variance has been approved by the SEO, flow meters shall meet the specifications described in the Selecting the Right Flow Meter and Flow Meter Specifications section of the State Engineer's Office Guidance: Water Meter Selection Specifications and Water Production Reporting
HOW TO INSTALL A FLOW METER
If you are required to install a meter to meet the conditions of a State Engineer Order (e.g., Horse Creek or Laramie County Control Area), the physical meter installation must be approved by the Superintendent of your respective water division (contact information is provided on the respective Water Division pages Division I, Division II, Division III, and Division IV). All other meter installations must be acceptable to the State Engineer. If you require guidance, please contact the Ground Water Division at (307) 777-6163.
Once installed, applicable flow meter information must be submitted to the Ground Water Division on the Water Meter Information included in the Guidance. Completed forms may be submitted via mail or email.
Each meter requires a separate form be submitted. Each newly installed meter requires a new form be submitted (including temporary meter installations if the regular meter is removed for servicing).
HOW TO READ A FLOW METER
If you have any questions, please call the Ground Water Division at (307) 777-6163, your local Water Superintendent, or Hydrographer/Water Commissioner.
