New Georgia Flow Instrument Service Center Opens to Support Agricultural Water Conservation
August 11, 2005
To help Georgia farmers conserve water, improve soil quality and increase crop yields, a new Georgia Flow Instrument Service Center in Dawson, GA, has been opened by McCrometer as part of the state’s Agricultural Water Use Measurement Program under the direction of the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission.
“Georgia welcomes the opening of the new Georgia Flow Instrument Service Center operated by McCrometer in Dawson. As we continue to work to conserve agricultural water use throughout our state, this center’s opening will prove to be a valuable asset to Georgia’s farmers as water conservation practices are implemented on their farm,” said David Bennett, Executive Director, Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission.
Eddie Cook, Georgia Regional Service Manager, added, “McCrometer is excited to open the Georgia Flow Instrument Service Center. This center demonstrates our commitment to Georgia farmers, agriculture and water conservation. We appreciate the warm Georgia welcome that we’ve received already here in Dawson from the state and local community.”
The new center is located in a 9,500 square foot facility at 4200 Albany Highway in Dawson. It will employ technicians who will assist farmers across the state of Georgia with water flow meter installation and maintenance. A mobile field assistance program will bring McCrometer’s highly skilled flow engineers and technicians directly to farms state-wide. The center will also have access to McCrometer’s extensive engineering capabilities and liquid flow instrument calibration laboratories.
The goals of the state’s Agricultural Water Use Measurement Program are: to help farmers use water resources wisely and to provide accurate water use data for policy decision-makers. This program will install water flow measurement instruments at about 21,000 agricultural surface and ground water systems to collect water data.
The benefits to farmers from the state program include: water conservation, reduced pumping costs, crop health diagnostics, improved management tools and greater potential profits. With the opening of the new Dawson service center, farmers will now have direct access to local expert flow measurement engineering and technical support from McCrometer.
Flow measurement plays a vital role in agriculture and irrigation. McCrometer's 50 years of industry experience resulted in the best-selling irrigation flow meter in the US, the Mc® Propeller meter. These instruments play a vital ongoing role in helping farmers conserve vital water resources while at the same time optimizing irrigation for improved crop yields and soil conservation.
McCrometer was founded by farmers and engineers committed to developing flow measurement solutions for the real world. Unable to find the right flow meter for their irrigation system, the original engineers designed their own, and went on to form McCrometer. Over 50 years later, this solutions-oriented approach still guides the company.
After 50 years in business, McCrometer has become one of the industry’s most trusted flow measurement technology resources. The company concentrates solely on flow meter technologies and solving complex liquid, steam, and gas flow measurement problems across a wide range of industries: Municipal/Industrial Water & Wastewater, Oil & Gas, Chemical Processing, Process Control & Plant, Electric Power Generation, Institutional Facilities and Agriculture.
