RainWatchers Beta Testing

RainWatchers Beta Testing

Water Technology is currently launching RainWatchers in collaboration with Glenelg Hopkins CMA and HydroLogic. We are currently forming a Beta Group with users registered in Victoria and Queensland.

 RainWatchers is a community based rainfall data collection and collation program offering a free service for people to upload and share their daily rainfall records as well as create their own dashboard containing customised weather information. The data uploaded to RainWatchers can be viewed by other RainWatchers on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis allowing them keep in touch with the latest weather conditions in their area and compare historical trends. Government agencies are able to use the data uploaded for an assessment of catchment conditions, flood warnings and a general understanding of the rainfall that is occurring in their area. If you are interested in RainWatchers please send an email onto
