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 1.20 ft. From October 1964 to September 1985, crest-stage gage located 0.3 mi downstream 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 1.20 ft. Online annual tidal peaks have been adjusted to present datum.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Maximum elevation known, 6.6 ft, adjusted to present datum, Nov 25, 1950, from high-water marks at East Point near the mouth of the Maurice River based on data published in the Corps of Engineers' report "Flood Plain Information, Tidal Lands and The Maurice River, Cumberland County, New Jersey" published Dec 1968.
