Anderson Pollution Control Industry 50 Year Institutional Award

The National Weather Service presented a 50 year Cooperative Observer Institutional Award to the operators at the Anderson Pollution Control facility.

The Anderson Pollution Control facility has been taking daily observations of maximum/minimum temperature as well as rain and snowfall since 1954. In addition the crew maintains an automatic precipitation gage.

Official weather records have been recorded in Anderson since October 1st of 1895.

The observations recorded at Anderson are part of a unique network of stations called the Historical Station Network (HCN). These stations provide benchmark information for the country concerning temperature and precipitation data.

The NWS applauds the efforts of the Anderson Pollution Control operators and offers congratulations on 50 years of service.
