The NADP commissioned testing of modern precipitation gages beginning in 1998. The only precipitation gage that fully participated in all three phases of the formal test program, and continued field testing conducted through 2007, the OTT Pluvio from Hach Environmental is approved for use at NADP sites.

The OTT Pluvio is already in use in critical precipitation networks throughout the world by organizations including: NWS / ASOS, German Weather Service, Hydro Quebec, Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, Danish Institute of Agriculture and Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute. NADP sites now have the opportunity to take advantage of its unmatched performance, functionality and reliability.
