result in inaccurate real-time gage height and streamflow data.

Lat 41°18'33", long 74°47'43"
referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Dingman Township, Pike
County, PA, Hydrologic Unit 02040104, on right bank 1,500 ft upstream
from toll bridge (on U.S. Route 206) between Montague, NJ and Milford,

PERIOD OF RECORD.--
March 1936 to September 1939 (gage heights
only, published as "at Milford, PA"). October 1939 to current
WDR NJ-81-2: 1980.
Water-stage recorder with telemetry. Datum of gage is
369.93 ft above NGVD of 1929. Prior to Feb 9, 1940, non-recording gage

Records good, except for estimated discharges, which
are fair. Diurnal fluctuation at medium and low flow caused by
hydroelectric plants on tributary streams. Flow regulated by Lake
Wallenpaupack, Cliff Lake, and by Pepacton, Cannonsville, Swinging
Bridge, Toronto, and Neversink Reservoirs. Discharges above 105,000
ft³/s from rating curve extension on basis of flood-routing
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--
Maximum discharge, 250,000
ft³/s, from rating curve extended above 105,000 ft³/s on basis of
flood-routing study, Aug 19, 1955, gage height, 35.15 ft; minimum
discharge, 382 ft³/s, Aug 24, 1954.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD.--

National Weather Service flood stage for
this gage is 25 ft.

The weather data for this station are
temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Although the
instrumentation is calibrated at least once/year, the temporary
classification means that documented routine inspections and other
quality assurance measures are not performed that would make the data
acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific
or interpretive studies.
