Rainfall Monitoring

There is a program in place to monitor the rainfall in Sandy Springs. Any member of the Sandy Springs community can submit rainfall data to help us track it more specifically. You may track it one of two main ways.

  1. Place a rain gauge in your yard in a location that is clear of any tree limbs or flowers so that the gauge captures all the rain to give an accurate measurement.
  2. Install a weather station in your yard. This is a more sophisticated way of sampling  the rain and storing the information. Some stations can even be hooked up to weather underground for automatic submittal. Check for that feature before purchasing a station.

We would appreciate your participation in this program. You can submit your data everytime it rains.
