PERIOD OF RECORD - Continuous-record discharge station, July 1932 to September 1958, October 1970 to September 1971, October 2003 to current year. Annual maximum tide gage, water years 1962, 1979-85, 1993. Prior to May 1, 2012 published as Cedar Creek at Lanoka Harbor (station 01409000).

REMARKS - Records fair, except for estimated discharges, which are poor. Flow occasionally regulated by gate operations at lakes and cranberry bogs upstream. Daily mean discharges prior to May 2012 were adjusted on basis of regression using concurrent discharge measurements at the former and current sites. Annual maximum discharges prior to the 2012 water year were adjusted on the basis of change in drainage area and attenuation between the former and current sites.
