ABSTRACT

Water-resources data for the 2004 water year for New Jersey are presented in three volumes, and consists of records of stage, discharge, and water-quality of streams; stage and contents of lakes and reservoirs; and water levels and water-quality of ground water. Volume 3 contains a summary of surface- and ground-water hydrologic conditions for the 2004 water year, a listing of current water-resources projects in New Jersey, a bibliography of water-related reports, articles, and fact sheets for New Jersey completed by the Geological Survey in recent years, water-quality records of chemical analyses from 132 continuing-record surface-water stations, 52 ground-water sites, records of daily statistics of temperature and other physical measurements from 3 continuous-recording stations, and 8 special-study sites consiting of 70 surface-water sites, 1 spring site, and 65 ground-water sites. Locations of water-quality stations are shown in figures 23-27. Locations of special-study sites are shown in figures 36-43. These data represent that part of the National Water Data System operated by the U.S. Geological Survey and cooperating federal, state, and local agencies in New Jersey.
