PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 1963 to current year.
REVISED RECORDS.--WDR NJ-1969: 1967(M). WDR NJ-82-2: Drainage area. WDR NJ-04-1: 1971(M).
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder with telemetry above concrete dam. Datum of gage is 9.29 ft above NGVD of 1929.
REMARKS.--Records fair, except for estimated discharges and discharges below 20 ft3/s, which are poor. Bypass gates were installed on both sides of the dam in August 1987. Occasional regulation at low flow from small lakes upstream. Small wastewater treatment plants in the basin were regionalized after the summer of 1987, significantly reducing low flow.
