Weekly volume of water pumped for handpumps monitored with Smart Handpump technology, Kwale County, Kenya

Dataset title Weekly volume of water pumped for handpumps monitored with Smart Handpump technology, Kwale County, Kenya
Dataset creators Patrick Thomson, University of Oxford
Dataset theme Geoscientific Information
Dataset abstract

This dataset contains a summary of the weekly volumetric output of pumps monitored using Smart Handpump sensors for 2014 and 2015. Grants that permitted the data collection include: Groundwater Risk Management for Growth and Development project (NE/M008894/1) funded by NERC/ESRC/DFID’s UPGro programme; New mobile citizens and waterpoint sustainability in rural Africa (ES/J018120/1) ESRC-DFID; Groundwater Risks and Institutional Responses for Poverty Reduction in Rural Africa (NE/L001950/1) funded by NERC/ESRC/DFID’s UPGro programme

Notes:

1. The accuracy of these volume figures should be considered to be +/- 20%.

2. The dataset has gaps due to variable signal, and some attrition due to damage and vandalism.

3. Not all pumps in the study area were under monitoring.
