Comments

Station is located near a soccer field in the middle of some strawberry fields. To protect the station, poles have been placed around the station, but should not affect readings. During the irrigation season, sprinkler irrigation may be collected in rain gauge. Cooperator is to take steps to minimize these occurrences. ** STATION TAKEN OFFLINE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE **
