NOTICE: This gage was installed on May 3, 2011. Prior to August 11, 2010 the gage was located at 01411318 Peck Bay at Ocean City.

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.

This tide gage is operated as part of the New Jersey Tide Telemetry System. The system is cooperatively funded by the State of New Jersey and the USGS.
