The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has measured rainfall at various locations in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, since 1963. Between 1992 and 1997, the USGS, in cooperation with Charlotte Stormwater Services, installed 43 raingages throughout Mecklengburg County and adjoining counties. These 43 raingages, combined with three previously installed gages, compose a data-collection network that provides detailed, accurate information on rainfall throughout the county.
