Dataset abstract

(I) Handpump Vibration Data

For each handpump, data is organized in one CSV file per day. These files are grouped together over batches, where each batch approximately corresponds to three months.

(II) Borehole Water Level Data

Water level data at the borehole of each handpump is recorded in one CSV file per handpump. Both uncompensated (raw) and compensated (with respect to atmospheric pressure) data are available.

(III) Data Time Logs

A separate Excel file lists the locations of the monitoring sites and the time logs corresponding to both (I) and (II) per handpump.
