During winter months, cold and ice may
result in inaccurate real-time gage height and streamflow data.

Lat 40°53'40", long 74°15'58"
referenced to North American Datum of 1983, WAYNE TOWNSHIP, Passaic
County, NJ, Hydrologic Unit 02030103, on upstream left bank at bridge
on Interstate 80, 300 ft upstream from confluence with Singac Brook,
0.4 mi downstream from confluence with Pompton River, and 1.5 mi
northwest of Singac.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--
Continuous-record discharge station December
2012 to current year.
Water-stage and velocity recorder, with telemetry. Datum
of gage is 155.00 ft above NGVD of 1929.
Records fair, except for estimated discharges, which
are poor. Flow regulated by reservoirs in Rockaway (see 01379990 and
01380900), Pequannock (see 01382100, 01382200, 01382300, 01382380, and
01382400), Wanaque (see 01383000, 01384002, and 01386990), and Ramapo
River subbasins. Large diversions for municipal supply from Passaic
River above Beatties Dam (see 01389490), and from Rockaway (see
01380800), Pequannock (see 01382370), Pompton (see 01388980, 01388981,
01388982), Ramapo (see 01387990), and Wanaque (see 01386980) Rivers. In
addition, the New Jersey-American Water Company (formerly Commonwealth
Water Company) diverts from Canoe Brook near Summit (see 01379529) and
from Passaic River near Summit (see 01379510). New Jersey-American
Water Company, the city of East Orange, and others also divert water
for municipal supply by pumping wells in the basin. Flow includes
sewage effluent from several treatment plants upstream of gage. Flows
exclude inflow from the Signac Brook 200 ft downstream.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD.--
Maximum discharge, 8,100 ft³/s,
May 3, 2014, gage height, 9.65 ft; minimum discharge not
National Weather Service flood stage for
this gage is 8.5 ft.
The water 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.
