Water-Monitoring Sites in New Jersey

USGS's National Water Information System Web (NWISWeb) provides access to water-resources data collected at approximately 1.5 million sites throughout the Nation. We offer real-time data for hundreds of surface-water, groundwater, water-quality, and precipitation sites in New Jersey, as well as historical and summary data and statistics using NWISWeb for New Jersey. Use the forms below to search for data for a particular site or use the following types of links as noted:

  • Site list - to view lists of New Jersey sites with a specific type of data.
  • Site selection criteria - to constrain the site list to those sites with additional criteria.

Data can be viewed by clicking on any site number in the site lists.

Site Information  The Site Inventory System contains and provides access to inventory information about sites at stream reaches, wells, test holes, springs, tunnels, drains, lakes, reservoirs, ponds, excavations, and water-use facilities.

About 300 components make up the descriptive elements of the site inventory. The retrieval program can be used for retrieving information about sites in summary lists, in detailed tables, or a file suitable for input to other programs.

Real-Time Data  Real-time data are time-series (recorded at fixed intervals) data from automated equipment and represent the most current hydrologic conditions. Measurements are commonly recorded at 5-60 minute intervals and transmitted to the NWIS database every 1-4 hours. Real-time data are available online for 31 days.

Daily Data  Daily data are derived by summarizing time-series data for each day for the period of record. The time-series data used to derive daily values, sometimes referred to as real-time or instantaneous values may be collected as often as every minute. These data are used to calculate daily data, such as the daily mean, median, maximum, minimum, and/or other derived values. Daily data include approved, quality-assured data that may be published, and provisional data, whose accuracy has not been verified.
