Estimated low-flow statistics at ungaged stream locations in New Jersey, water year 2021

September 23, 2022

Estimates of various low-flow statistics were computed at 66 ungaged stream locations throughout New Jersey during the 2021 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, drainage area, method of estimation, lowest annual and winter average flows, and the 75 percent flow duration computed during the 2021 water year. The data are provided in plain text file and ArcGIS shapefile formats.
