Purpose

The dataset was developed exclusively to examine the association between rainfall and microbiological contamination of two private wells in eastern Pennsylvania that were sampled June - November 2017. The association between rainfall and contamination was evaluated using aggregated rainfall data (e.g., the sum of rainfall 0-7 days prior to private well sample collection).
