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.


LOCATION.--Lat 39°57'22", long 74°37'40" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Pemberton Township, Burlington County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02040202, on right bank, 50 ft upstream of bridge on Fourmile Road (County Route 646), 0.1 mi south of New Lisbon, 0.7 mi upstream from mouth, and 3.1 mi east of Pemberton.
DRAINAGE AREA.--77.9 mi2.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--Occasional miscellaneous discharge measurements, water years 1954, 1973. May 1998 to current year.
REVISED RECORDS.--WDR NJ-03-1: 1998 (M), 2003. WDR NJ-04-1: 2003 (M)
GAGE.--Water-stage, velocity and precipitation recorder with telemetry and crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is 34.18 ft above NAVD of 1988.

Rain gage data are available from this location at this link.

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.
