Rain Gauge Inspection at Oxford STW
Rain Gauge Inspection at Oxford STW
Just a random shot of part of Thames Water's Oxford sewage works.
My colleague is inspecting a rain gauge.
There are hundreds of manually read rain gauges all over the country which are looked at every day by on-site observers. The results are sent to the Environment Agency and Met. Office and contribute to the ever growing national rainfall data base.
Each gauge is inspected by the Met. Office every 3 years to make sure that it is in an acceptable condition for accurate recording. (i.e. not leaning sideways, bent by grass cutters, overhung by branches, bits stolen etc.)
