Event Registration - TPNRD Water Data Program
Thursday, February 11, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
The Twin Platte Natural Resources District manages groundwater resources in an area around North Platte, Nebraska. A collaborative effort that was irrigator initiated is changing the landscape of how to gather water data for use in more accurate groundwater assessment and management. TPRND partnered with GiSC, a grower-owned data cooperative, to build the TPNRD-Water Data Program based around smart water meters at every irrigation well. It is a large-scale collaborative effort with TPNRD, GiSC, electric providers in the district, Olsson Civil Engineering, Paige Wireless and irrigators to make this happen. It is an opportunity for irrigators to tell their story and for TPNRD to gather the most extensive set of real-time pumping data ever accumulated utilizing IoT devices. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 category.
