Monthly Rain Gauge Reports


The Clearwater SWCD operates a Rainfall Monitoring Program throughout the county. Rain gauges are read and recorded daily by our citizen volunteers. At the end of each month our volunteers submit their readings to the SWCD. The SWCD then submits those data records to the statewide archives maintained by the State Climatology Office.

This information is used for lake level and stream flow predictions, justifying crop losses, tracking drought conditions, predicting future weather conditions, and for research at many levels. This data has proven to be very helpful at the local and statewide levels.

We currently have a number of great rain gauge monitors, but continue to seek volunteers in the following townships: Bear Creek, Clover, Eddy, Falk, Hangaard, Holst, Itasca, LaPrairie (North), LaPrairie (South), Leon, Nora, Pine Lake, Rice, and Winsor.

We provide the official rain gauges and data sheets free of charge. If you live in one of the townships listed above and are interested in becoming a volunteer of the Rainfall Monitoring Program, please stop by our office or call us for further information.
