Keeping our valued network of rainfall observers safe during the COVID-19 public health emergency is important to us.
SEPA is committed to keeping its people safe during the COVID-19 public health emergency and this commitment also extends to our dedicated rainfall observers. Living across Scotland, this valued network of observers support our role in climate research, flood risk management and managing Scotland’s water resources by taking rainfall measurements.
We have contacted all our observers directly and provided the following advice to them to ensure their safety during the COVID-19 public health emergency:
Many of our observers work offline but for those that do have email access we have encouraged them to contact our co-ordinator for the network to update us on their status and wellbeing.
Our rainfall co-ordinator is Grant Kennedy, contact him on, 07767 325 011.
