6-inch Parshall Flume
The 6-inch Parshall flume is useful in measuring small water rights. The flume is also used to measure small wastewater treatment plant flows (headworks and discharge) as well as smaller surface water flows.
Industrial discharges can also be measured with the 6-inch Parshall flume.
