Click to hide Water-Year Summary instructions and information
  • Water-Year Summary reports summarize a year of hydrologic data in a printer-friendly format.
  • For water years 2014 onward, choose a water year and parameter and an on-demand Water-Year Summary report will be generated.
  • For water years 2006 through 2013, choose a water year and an Annual Water Data Report will be provided.
  • For water years 2005 and earlier, Annual Water Data Reports may be available in digital format.
  • Not all sites have reports available for every water year.

USGS Water-Year Summary 2019
01389005 PASSAIC RIVER BELOW POMPTON RIVER, AT TWO BRIDGES, NJ
LOCATION - Lat 40°53'47", long 74°16'09" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Wayne Township, Passaic County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02030103, on left bank on Fairfield Road in Two Bridges, 400 ft downstream from the Pompton River, 1.4 mi northwest of Little Falls, and 3.2 mi upstream of Beatties Dam.
DRAINAGE AREA - 740 mi².  
REVISIONS HISTORY - WDR US-2013: Drainage area.
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - Annual maximum, water years 1989 to current year. Occasional low-flow measurements, water years 1991 and 1996 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder with telemetry. Datum of gage is 153.91 ft above NAVD of 1988.
REMARKS - Annual peak data can be obtained by selecting Peak streamflow from the 'Available data for this site' drop-down menu above or by using this link.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - The flood of Oct 10-11, 1903 reached a stage of about 18.5 ft, and may have been affected by the failure of the Pompton Lake Dam on the Ramapo River, based on data in the New Jersey Division of Water Policy and Supply, 1957 report entitled "Floods on the Passaic and Pompton Rivers at Wayne Township, Passaic County, New Jersey.".
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum gage height, 17.17 ft, Aug 30, 2011.
WATER-QUALITY RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD -
DISCRETE DATA: Water years 1987-96, 1999, and 2008 to current year.
CONTINUOUS DATA:
Dissolved Nitrate plus Nitrite: July 2009 to current year.
Dissolved Organic Carbon: July 2009 to current year.
Dissolved Oxygen: April 1989 to current year.
Dissolved Oxygen, Percent of Saturation: October 2001 to current year.
pH: November 2005 to current year.
Specific Conductance: April 1989 to current year.
Water Temperature: April 1989 to current year.
Total Chlorophyll-a: July 2010 to current year.
Turbidity: December 2011 current year.
REMARKS - The station is 400 ft downstream from the confluence of the Pompton River with the left bank of the Passaic River. One water-quality sensor (monitor) measures the characteristics of water pumped sequentially from three separate intakes. The station may be impacted by occasional diversion of water from the Pompton River 750 ft upstream from its junction with the left bank of the Passaic River, which is 400 ft upstream from the station. If depicted, daily-mean-diversion records are comprised of diversions to Wanaque Reservoir and Little Falls Water-Treatment Plant, but not any intermittent diversion to Oradell Reservoir. Interruptions in the daily record were due to instrument or pumping-system malfunction. The accuracy of continuous water-quality data can be found here.
