Estimated low-flow statistics at ungaged stream locations in New Jersey, water year 2020

November 19, 2021

Estimates of various low-flow statistics were computed at 32 ungaged stream locations throughout New Jersey during the 2020 water year using methods in the published reports, 1) Streamflow characteristics and trends in New Jersey, water years 1897-2003 (Watson and others, 2005) and 2) Implementation of MOVE.1, censored MOVE.1, and piecewise MOVE.1 low-flow regressions with applications at partial-record streamgaging stations in New Jersey (Colarullo and others, 2018). The estimates are computed as needed for use in water resources permitting, assessment, and management by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The data release includes the stream name, location, method of estimation, drainage area, and intended use of the low-flow statistics computed during the 2020 water year. The data are provided as both a plain text file and ArcGIS shapefile format.
