Rainfall Data

MSD's Watershed Operations division maintains our rainfall data system, which includes real-time radio rain gauges and radar rainfall.

Real-Time Rain Gauge Data

MSD owns and maintains a network of radio reporting rain gauges that covers all of Hamilton County. The network of gauges report to a centrally located base station in real time. The radio rain gauges are used to help calibrate the radar rainfall site.

Radar Rainfall Data

Radar rainfall addresses the spatial variation in the precipitation that is not otherwise captured by the radio reporting network. This calibrated data is used by the District in many different ways, including to calibrate and validate models used to size new sewer and sewer replacement projects.
