Boating safety tips
7/28/2016 Notice to users - Water level data, beginning on 10/1/2015, at this site has been
re-computed to reference the water level to NAVD88 datum. In order to convert historic
water level data stored in NGVD29 datum to the current NAVD88 datum, users must apply
known -1.05 ft. datum shift, as calculated for this location using VERTCON.
This station managed by the MD-DE-DC Water Science Center Dover office.
