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.
National Weather Service flood stage for this gage is 7.0 ft.
Forecasts for this gage are issued by the National
Weather Service routinely year-round.
LOCATION.--Lat 40°53'05", long 74°13'34" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Totowa Borough, Passaic County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02030103, on left bank 0.6 mi downstream from Beatties Dam in Little Falls, and 1.0 mi upstream from Peckman River.
DRAINAGE AREA.--762 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--September 1897 to current year. Monthly discharge only for September 1897, published in WSP 1302. Published as "at Paterson", September 1897 to September 1955.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 120.00 ft above NGVD of 1929 (levels by Passaic Valley Water Commission). Prior to Jan 8, 1933, nonrecording gage operated by the Society for Establishing Useful Manufacturers and data were reviewed by the USGS. From Jan 8, 1933, to Sep 30, 1955, water-stage recorder, at site 3.7 mi downstream at NGVD of 1929 (levels from New Jersey Geological Survey benchmark). Streamflow at this site is significantly affected by storage in reservoirs, water-supply diversions, hydroelectric plant operations, and sewage effluent inflows upstream of gage.
COOPERATION.--Gage-height record collected in cooperation with the Passaic Valley Water Commission and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, Passaic Flood Warning System.
