Cost-share deadline is June 30 for irrigation flow meters

NORFOLK – Another flow meter has been added to the approved list by the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District (LENRD) Board of Directors.  At their June meeting, the board approved the inclusion of the McCrometer Duramag flow meter.  There are now eight approved flow meters that producers can install on their irrigation systems prior to Jan. 1, 2018.  The district is also offering cost-share of $500 per flow meter to producers who apply for the funding by this Friday, June 30. Producers should contact their local NRCS office or the LENRD office to apply.
LENRD Assistant General Manager Brian Bruckner said, “These incentives are available for producers on a first-come, first-served basis.  There is enough grant money to cost-share on 3,000 meters.  Therefore, it’s very important that producers apply at their local NRCS office or the LENRD office by June 30.”
