Station description

In April 1998, the Washington State Department of Ecology and the members of the Dungeness River Water Users Association formalized a memorandum creating a temporary trust water right under Chapter 90.42 RCW. This agreement describes the process of creating a permanent trust water right for future irrigation and instream flows and states that no more than 50% of the flow of the Dungeness River may be diverted. To assist the Dungeness River Water Users Association with the implementation of this agreement, Ecology has installed five flow monitoring stations on selected irrigation ditches. In cooperation with the irrigation districts, Parshall flumes and near real-time flow monitoring equipment has been installed at the CCD Irrigation Ditch (above the split), at the Independent Irrigation Company Ditch (at the fish screen), at the Agnew Irrigation Ditch (at the fish screen), at the Sequim Prairie/ Dungeness District Ditch (at the fish screen), and at the Highland Irrigation District Ditch (at the fish screen). Construction of these sites was completed in the Spring of 2001.
