RAIN GAUGES
 
 

To see a map of  Lee County Rain Gauges  Click Here.

THEORY OF OPERATION:
The rain gage works by funneling collected rain to land on the pivot-point of a 
two-sided "bucket." When one side fills, it pivots down--causing the "bucket-tip" to
be recorded, emptying the bucket and bringing the empty side under the collection point.  Each bucket-tip occur when 0.01 inches of rain has been collected.
