The Wodonga¬†Waste Transfer Station in Kane Rd currently records the city's rainfall for the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).
In recognition of regular differences in rainfall between Albury and Wodonga, the BOM sought an official rain gauge for the Victorian side of the border.
Staff at the Waste Transfer Station put their hand up to take the readings, which will complement the automatic weather station at Albury airport.
There are seven weather stations within 100 kilometres of Wodonga, but this new gauge will give Wodonga residents accurate rainfall figures.
The official rain gauge was installed in February, 2011.
