Rain Report

"Rain showers my spirit and waters my soul." - Emily Logan Decens

Curious about how much rain we've collected this year? Want to check on the rain totals after the last big storm? We've got you covered.

San Jose Water tracks precipitation totals at a number of its lakes and reservoirs. We use the data for tracking purposes. We provide this information because we know our customer's water-wise households are tracking rain fall patterns, monitoring their landscape watering, and using precipitation totals to identify the best times of the year to plant their gardens.
