PERIOD OF RECORD.--
Continuous-record discharge station,
September 1923 to current year.
WSP 781: Drainage area. WSP 1031: 1940(M).
WSP 1552: 1929(M), 1936(M), 1938. WDR NJ-1969: 1967. WDR NJ-1970: 1968,
1969. On June 18, 2020 peak streamflow for the 2015 water year
Water-stage recorder with telemetry. Concrete control
since Nov 2, 1938. Datum of gage is 25.00 ft above NGVD of 1929. Prior
to Nov 2, 1938, at site 560 ft downstream at datum 2.54 ft lower.
Records good, except for estimated discharges, which
are fair. Diurnal fluctuations at low flow probably due to patterns of
sewage effluent entering river upstream. Diversion from river upstream
at Paramus by United Water New Jersey, for municipal supply. The flow
past this station may be affected by pumpage from wells by United Water
New Jersey and others. The river was channelized upstream in Paramus
