Hydrologic conditions ranged from a wet beginning to a dry end. Significant rainfall events led to record-breaking flooding in the summer and fall. However, drier than normal conditions developed at the end of the year.
The hydrologic conditions of 2021 can be described as relatively normal through the first half, wet through the summer and early fall and dry at the end.
The report provides an overall look at the hydrology of 2021 in the Basin and also provides detailed summaries of the major storm systems that hit the Basin last summer and fall.
DRBC also provides data via hydrosnap.drbc.net which updates daily, showing reservoir storage levels, the location of the salt front and streamflow data for the Delaware River at Montague, N.J. and Trenton, N.J.
