LOCATION.--Lat 40°57'19", long 74°05'59" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Fair Lawn Borough, Bergen County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02030103, 100 ft downstream of Hohokus Brook, 0.7 mi upstream of bridge on Dunkerhook Road, and 2.6 mi northwest of Paramus.
DRAINAGE AREA.--43.3 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--Miscellaneous measurements, water year 2011. Continuous-record gaging station, Oct 2012 to current year.
REVISED RECORDS.--Revision History Water Year 2014 to Current
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder with telemetry, crest-stage gage, and concrete control. Datum of gage is 50 ft above NGVD of 1929 (from topographic map).
REMARKS.--Records fair, except for estimated discharges, which are poor. Diurnal fluctuations at low flow probably due to patterns of sewage effluent entering river upstream. The flow past this station may be affected by pumpage from wells by United Water New Jersey and others.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 3,130 ft3/s, Aug 1, 2014, gage height, 5.34 ft; minimum discharge, 9.3 ft3/s, Oct 3, 2014.
