Rain Gauges

The rain gauge was installed adjacent to the East Avenue and Plainfield Road intersection within the secure fenced area containing the large Village of La Grange water reservoir. This site was selected due to the controlled access, and due to the ideal open space characteristics, which offer the unobstructed collection of rainfall.

Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge System

The map exhibit provided depicts the relative positions of the sauging equipment installed for the study. The flow meters were installed in manhole structures located immediately upstream of the connection to the MWRD interceptor manhole. The rain gauge location is also shown relative to the Plainfield Road and East Avenue intersection. The location for each gauging point, defined by an adjacent street address has been listed in Table 10.
