Click to hidestation-specific text
During winter months, cold and ice may result in inaccurate real-time tide elevation data. Adjustments or deletions of this data can only be done after detailed analysis.



LOCATION.--Lat 39°09'42", long 74°49'56" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Middle Township, Cape May County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02040206, on left upstream wingwall of bridge on State Route 47, 1.2 mi southwest of South Dennis, 1.6 mi upstream from Dennis Creek, and 3.3 mi upstream from Delaware Bay.
DRAINAGE AREA.--9.37 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--Unpublished fragmentary gage-height record, April 1997 to February 2000. Continuous-record tide gage, March 2000 to current year.
GAGE.--Tide elevation and water temperature recorder with telemetry and tidal crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is at 0.00 ft NAVD of 1988. To determine approximate elevations to NGVD of 1929, add 1.27 ft.
REMARKS.--Periods of missing data are noted by dashed (---) lines.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation, 6.01 ft, Oct 30, 2012; minimum elevation, -5.90 ft, Feb 26, 2012, although a lower tide likely occurred during period of partially missing record on Feb 17, 2007.

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 station managed by the New Jersey Water Science Center.
