ABSTRACT: A study was conducted in which 66 Parshall flumes used for agricultural flow measurement were assessed for physical integrity, settlement, and submergence. A total of 292 physical defects was documented. A flow measurement error analysis was performed indicating that 52 percent of the flumes measured flow beyond ±3 percent of the correct value and 41 percent of the flumes measured flow beyond ±5 percent. The findings indicate that the infrastructure is aging. The flow measurement system comprised of flumes no longer provide an accurate accounting of water through the distribution network.
