referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Berkeley Township, Ocean

Boulevard bridge, 1 mi south of Crystal Lake, 1.7 mi northwest of
Lanoka Harbor, and 4.2 mi upstream from mouth.
PERIOD OF RECORD.--
Continuous-record discharge station, July
1932 to September 1958, October 1970 to September 1971, October 2003 to
current year. Annual maximum tide gage, water years 1962, 1979-85,
1993. Prior to May 1, 2012 published as Cedar Creek at Lanoka Harbor
Water-stage recorder with telemetry and crest-stage gage.
Datum of gage is 1.81 ft above NAVD 1988. Prior to May 1, 2012, gage
was located 2.2 mi downstream, 50 ft upstream from bridge on U.S.
Highway 9, at a datum of 1.21 ft below NAVD 1988 and drainage area of
Records fair, except for estimated discharges, which
are poor. Flow occasionally regulated by gate operations at lakes and
cranberry bogs upstream. Daily mean discharges prior to May 2012 were
adjusted on basis of regression using concurrent discharge measurements
at the former and current sites. Annual maximum discharges prior to the
2012 water year were adjusted on the basis of change in drainage area
and attenuation between the former and current sites.
