LOCATION.--Lat 41°18'33", long 74°47'43" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Dingman Township, Pike County, PA, Hydrologic Unit 02040104, on right bank 1,500 ft upstream from toll bridge (on U.S. Route 206) between Montague, NJ and Milford, PA, 0.8 mi downstream from Sawkill Creek, and at river mile 246.3.
DRAINAGE AREA.--3,480 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD.--March 1936 to September 1939 (gage heights only, published as "at Milford, PA"). October 1939 to current year.
REVISIONS HISTORY.--WDR NJ-81-2: 1980.
GAGE.--Water-stage recorder with telemetry. Datum of gage is 369.93 ft above NGVD of 1929. Prior to Feb 9, 1940, non-recording gage on upstream side of left span of subsequently dismantled bridge at present site at datum 70 ft lower.
REMARKS.--Records good, except for estimated discharges, which are fair. Diurnal fluctuation at medium and low flow caused by hydroelectric plants on tributary streams. Flow regulated by Lake Wallenpaupack, Cliff Lake, and by Pepacton, Cannonsville, Swinging Bridge, Toronto, and Neversink Reservoirs. Discharges above 105,000 ft³/s from rating curve extension on basis of flood-routing study.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--Maximum discharge, 250,000 ft³/s, from rating curve extended above 105,000 ft³/s on basis of flood-routing study, Aug 19, 1955, gage height, 35.15 ft; minimum discharge, 382 ft³/s, Aug 24, 1954.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--Flood of Oct 10, 1903 reached a stage of 31.1 ft (from high-water mark), discharge, 217,000 ft³/s.

Weather station data are available from this location at this link.

The weather 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.
