Precipitation record Hellendoorn (NL), or not? Hellendoorn was in the news this week because a precipitation record would have been measured in July.
Not much later it turned out that the extra water in the raingauge was the cause of an error in the measurement set-up. This shows once again that, in addition to a good quality precipitation meter, the arrangement of the precipitation meter and maintenance are also of great importance.
RMA Hydromet has a test area with different types of precipitation meters at its office in Hellendoorn and is happy to inform you about their operation, the best location and maintenance.
