About the Volunteer Rain Gauge Network

Alameda County has a system of rainfall gauges that are monitored and maintained by the Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District’s Cooperative Rain Data Collection Program. To learn more, please visit the ACFCD web page dedicated to this program: Alameda County Flood Control Rain Gauges.

Volunteer Duties

Through this program, volunteers measure and record rainfall depths at the same time each day to develop consistent records of accumulated rainfall. This data is then forwarded to ACFCD monthly. ACFCD provides a rain gauge and recording materials to eligible volunteers. Click here to learn more about ACFCD volunteering opportunities: Alameda County Flood Control Volunteer Programs.
