DRAINAGE AREA.--17.9 mi². (revised)
PERIOD OF RECORD.--October 1934 to September 1978, October 1985 to current year. Monthly discharge only for some periods, published in WSP 1302.
REVISIONS HISTORY.--WDR NJ-82-1: 1935-77(P). WDR US-09-1: 1949, 1957, 1961, 1972(M), 1973(M), 1974. WDR US-10-01: Drainage Area.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder with telemetry, crest-stage gage, and concrete control. Datum of gage is 292.67 ft above NGVD of 1929 (levels by New Jersey Geological Survey). Prior to Sep 30, 1978, at datum 10.0 ft higher.
REMARKS.--Records fair, except for estimated discharges, which are poor. Records given herein include flow over spillway and through ports in dam when open or through waste gate in dam.

Flow occasionally regulated by Ringwood Mill Pond, Sterling, and Sterling Forest Lakes, and several smaller lakes above station.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 2,430 ft³/s, Aug 28, 2011, gage height, 14.02 ft; minimum discharge, 0.0 ft³/s, occurred on many days just after waste gate was closed and water was below intake ports.
