Details

The Rickly Tipping Bucket Mounting & Leveling Base is a mount to attach a rain gauge to a pole or pipe and then to level the gauge for accurate measurements. It mounts to the top of a pole or pipe, and then the rain gauge is mounted on the mounting/leveling base and leveled with adjusting screws.

It is designed to mount to a user-supplied 1.5 IPS (1.9" OD, unthreaded) pipe and should be long enough to place the gauge's orifice at a one-meter height. The pole or pipe can be placed directly into a concrete foundation, attached to a concrete foundation using j-bolts, or self-supported with legs. A concrete pad is recommended.

How long drought will persist due to La Niña is an important question for every community that suffers from extremely dry conditions.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is funding a research project called, “Securing Water for and From Agriculture Through Effective Community and Stakeholder Engagement,” and its participants are hoping that what they learn about achieving buy-in from various stakeholders and the community involvement that follows can help resolve some of these repeating conflicts.

In May, another study was conducted by Nestle Waters, “Perspectives on American Waters.
