Recording rain

The Waste Transfer Station currently records the city's rainfall for the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).

In recognition of regular differences in rainfall between Albury and Wodonga, the BOM sought an official rain gauge for the Victorian side of the border.

The official rain gauge was installed in February, 2011.
