Rain gage data is available from this location at this link.

The air temperature 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.

This gaging station was discontinued on January 1, 2018, due to persistent beaver activity causing the stage-discharge relationship to be unreliable.

This station managed by the New Jersey Water Science Center.
