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.
Estimated flood stage for this gage is 13 feet.
The air 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.
LOCATION. --Lat 39°40'00", long 74°19'13" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Eagleswood Township, Ocean County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02040301, on downstream left bank at bridge on Martha Road, 50 ft downstream from Stafford Forge Dam, 0.2 mi south of Stafford Forge, and 1.2 mi downstream from Log Swamp Branch.
DRAINAGE AREA. --15.8 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD. --Occasional low-flow measurements, water years 1969-1973. Continuous-record gaging station, October 1973 to September 1988, July 2003 to current year.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 6.36 ft above National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929. Water years 1969-1973, low-flow measurements made at site 400 ft downstream. Prior to Aug 6, 1981, water-stage recorder and wooden control at site 50 ft upstream at datum 9.42 ft higher. Streamflow at this station maybe affected by cranberry bog operation and diversions for irrigation.
