  • Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S. states and additional territories. Our hydrologic monitoring stations continue to send data in near real-time to NWISWeb, and we are continuing critical water monitoring activities to protect life and property on a case-by-case basis. The health and safety of the public and our employees are our highest priorities, and we continue to follow guidance from the White House, the CDC, and state and local authorities.

SURFACE-WATER RECORDS

LOCATION.--Lat 39°45'39", long 74°06'38" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Barnegat Light Borough, Ocean County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02040301, on an elevated three pile structure at U.S. Coast Guard Station in Barnegat Light, 0.5 mi southwest of Barnegat Inlet, and 4.4 mi east of Pebble Beach in Barnegat Township.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--Annual maximum tide, water years 1965-1980. Unpublished fragmentary gage-height record, September 1997 to October 2000. Continuous-record tide gage, November 2000 to current year.
GAGE.--Tide elevation, water temperature, precipitation, air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind speed, and wind direction recorder with telemetry and tidal crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is at 0.00 ft NAVD of 1988. To determine approximate elevation in NGVD of 1929, add 1.26 ft.
REMARKS.--Periods of missing data are noted by dashed (---) lines.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation, 5.21 ft, Oct 29, 2012; minimum elevation, -4.25 ft, Mar 9, 2005, although a lower tide likely occurred during period of missing record on Feb 16, 2007.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum elevation, 4.93 ft, Dec 11, 1992, adjusted to present datum, from mark on discontinued tidal crest-stage gage.

National Weather Service flood stage for this gage is 3.7 ft.

Weather station 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.

Water temperatures collected at this gage often reflect Atlantic Ocean water temperatures during incoming tides and Barnegat Bay water temperatures on outgoing tides.

This station managed by the New Jersey Water Science Center.
