§ 1042. Meters.
(a) A measurement device must be all of the following to be a “meter” used to measure groundwater extractions from the well for purposes of section 1040, subdivision (a)(1)(A):
(1) Equipped with a totalizer that records the total volume of groundwater extracted from the well.
(2) Permanently attached to the well discharge pipe between the point of extraction and the point of delivery for beneficial use.
(3) Calibrated to an accuracy of within + five (5) percent by volume. The calibration must be conducted by a qualified individual upon installation and at least once every five years thereafter, or more frequently if necessary to ensure accuracy is maintained.
(4) Installed, maintained, operated, inspected, and monitored to ensure the accuracy requirement of subdivision (3).
(5) Installed in a manner such that it is readily accessible for reading, inspection, testing, repair and replacement.
(6) Reasonably accessible and available for inspection by an authorized representative of the board upon request.
(b) The board may conduct a field inspection or request additional information from the extractor to determine if a meter is properly installed and meets the requirements of this section. Failure to provide reasonable access for an inspection or to provide records of calibration by a qualified individual upon request by the board is a sufficient basis for the board to determine that a meter has not been used to measure groundwater extractions for purposes of section 1040, subdivision (a)(1)(A).
