Purpose

Groundwater level data is sampled hourly and transmitted either in real-time or internally logged and later downloaded from non-telemetered sites. Archived groundwater-level data from the PGOWN include: (1) hourly archived data (groundwater level data in m below surface) for all active PGOWN stations (hourly data is only available for previous year starting from the present calendar date); and (2) daily archived data (reported as daily groundwater level as an average of all the readings within the daily 24-hour period [in m below surface]) for all active PGOWN stations.
