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).

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.
