During winter months, cold and ice may result in inaccurate real-time gage height and streamflow data. Adjustments or deletions of this data can only be done after detailed analysis.
NOTICE: USGS data may be temporarlly unavailable for short periods during Woodcliff Lake dam improvements construction. The water level in the lake is being lowered for safety reasons during construction and is generally not an indication of erroneous USGS data. Water levels at the outlet may also be affected. Dam construction is scheduled to be complete by December 31, 2015.
The water temperature data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least once/year, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality assurance measures are not performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.
