USGS Water-Year Summary 2021
LOCATION - Lat 39°09'28", long 74°41'52" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Sea Isle City, Cape May County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02040302, on a four-pile structure at the northwestern end of 43rd Place, 380 ft northeast of the end of Old Sea Isle Boulevard, 600 ft south of the bridge carrying Sea Isle City Boulevard over Ludlum Thorofare, and 0.3 mi west of the Sea Isle City Police Department.
PERIOD OF RECORD - Continuous-record tide gage, May 1975 to May 1978, February 2000 to current year. Annual maximum tide, October 1978 to September 1984. Unpublished fragmentary gage-height record, May 1997 to January 2000.
GAGE - Tide elevation and water temperature recorder with telemetry and tidal crest-stage gage. Datum of gage is at 0.00 ft NAVD of 1988. To determine approximate elevations to NGVD of 1929, add 1.27 ft. From May 1975 to May 1978, the tide elevation and water temperature recorder was located at 44th Street, 800 ft southwest of current station and datum of gage at 0.00 ft NGVD of 1929. From October 1978 to September 1984, tidal crest-stage gage located at 44th Street, 800 ft southwest of current station and datum of gage at 0.00 ft NGVD of 1929. Data published to NGVD of 1929 can be adjusted to NAVD of 1988 by subtracting 1.27 ft. Online peaks have been adjusted to present datum.

Prior to March 5, 2019, gage located about 500 ft east at the Sea Isle City Municipal Marina. At prior location gage could not measure tide elevation below about -2.85 ft from March 4, 2019 to Jun 2, 2009, below about -3.00 ft. from July 25, 2005 to Jun 2, 2009, below about -2.8 ft from Jul 25, 2005 to Aug 13, 2003, and below about -1.5 ft prior to Aug 13, 2003. Tide elevations below recording limits were estimated when possible. Periods of missing data are noted by dashed (---) lines.

EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum elevation known, 6.14 ft, adjusted to present datum, Dec 11, 1992, from high-water marks at northwest end of Third Street just south of Sea Isle City Boulevard leading into Sea Isle City.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum elevation, 7.56 ft, Oct 29, 2012, from crest-stage gage; minimum elevation, undetermined, likely occurred Feb 17, 2007 as indicated by nearby reference gages
