Water Conservation Field Services Program

Implementation of Conservation Measures:

The Great Plains WCFSP provides technical and financial assistance to Reclamation water districts, who have quality updated conservation plans, to help them begin implementation of measures identified in their plans. Area staff can meet with districts to assess which planned measures would be most beneficial to begin implementation with, and to discuss the type and level of assistance the WCFSP could provide.

Examples of measures that could be implemented include installation of upgraded water measurement devices or structures, conversion of open ditch laterals to buried pipe, lining of high-seepage canal sections, automation and telemetry of conveyance systems, development of best management practices, development of water pricing incentives, improved water accounting and water budgets, and conservation/management training for district staff.
