SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 2001 to May 2013, July 2014 to current.
GAGE - Data collection platform and Acoustic Velocity Meter. Datum of gage is 7.92 ft below NGVD of 1929.
REMARKS - Astronomical tides cause significant cycles of approximately 24.8 hours at this site. Previously published 24-hour daily mean values may contain cycles that were a result of the 24-hour averaging and are unrelated to stream hydrology. October 2005 to current year, tidal effects were removed from unit value discharges using the Godin filter. Daily mean discharge computed from filtered values. Unit values available upon request.
