Isanti Soil & Water Conservation District

Weather affects everyone.  Citizens in Isanti County volunteer to be precipitation monitors. Their weather observations are reported to the Department of Natural Resources State Climatology Office. This information is used to produce weekly precipitation maps of both rain and snow. If you are interested in becoming an official weather observer contact Linda Gehrking - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

You can check rainfall totals by visiting the Minnesota State Climatology office website.  Use the drop-down box to select Isanti County.

Another way people can volunteer is to become a citizen water monitor for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.  Volunteers measure lake and stream water clarity. The data collected is used to make decisions on restoration projects. You can find out more and sign up on their website:
