Flowmeters on the Certified Water Flowmeter List have been certified by their manufacturers to comply with Kansas’ specifications for water flowmeters in K.A.R. 5-1-4. These flowmeters are acceptable to use when the chief engineer requires a water flowmeter pursuant to K.A.R. 5-1-7. In addition, if the chief engineer requires a water flowmeter, the flowmeter must be installed as specified in K.A.R. 5-1-6 and be maintained as specified in K.A.R. 5-1-8 and 5-1-9. 


 Certification for a water flowmeter model does not constitute endorsement by the chief engineer, the Division of Water Resources, nor the Kansas Department of Agriculture. Click the image above to download a copy of the full list.
