16. Measurement Equipment (Continued)


(g) Accuracy


Each measurement device shall be considered accurate if

it is operating within the manufacturer's published

accuracy rating or within one half of one percent

(1/2%), whichever is greater.


(h) Adjusting for Inaccuracy of Measurement Equipment


If, upon test, any measurement equipment is found to be

in error of not more than two percent (2%), previous

recording of such equipment shall be considered

accurate in computing deliveries; but such equipment

shall be adjusted at once to record correctly (plus or

minus 1/2% error). If, upon test, any measurement

equipment shall be found to be inaccurate by any amount

exceeding two percent (2%) at a recording corresponding

to the average hourly rate of flow for the period since

the last preceding test, then any previous recording of

such equipment shall be corrected to zero error for any

period which is definitely known. But in case the

period is not known definitely or agreed upon, such

correction shall be for a period extending over one-

half (1/2) of the time elapsed since the date of the

last test not exceeding a correction period of sixteen

(16) calendar days.


(i) Preservation of Measurement Records


Each party shall preserve all original tests, data, or

other similar records for a period of at least one (1)

year or such lesser period as may be permitted by

applicable rules of regulatory agencies having
