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.

 


SURFACE-WATER RECORDS

LOCATION.--Lat 39°53'06", long 74°30'19" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Woodland Township, Burlington County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02040202, on right bank, 25 ft upstream from culvert on Butterworth Road in Brendan T. Byrne State Forest, 3.4 mi upstream from confluence with Cooper Branch, and 7.0 mi southeast of Browns Mills.
DRAINAGE AREA.--2.35 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 1953 to current year. Prior to October 1962, published as "McDonald Branch in Lebanon State Forest". October 1962 through September 2003, published as "McDonalds Branch in Lebanon State Forest".
REVISED RECORDS.--WDR NJ-82-2: Drainage area.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder with telemetry and concrete control. Datum of gage is 117.73 ft above NGVD of 1929 (levels from New Jersey Geological Survey benchmark).
REMARKS.--Records fair, except for estimated discharges, which are poor. Gage-height record is collected upstream of concrete control, and discharge record, which includes leakage around control, is measured at site 785 ft downstream.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 61 ft3/s, Aug 28, 2011, gage height, 2.54 ft; minimum discharge, 0.49 ft3/s, many days.
