Lower Rariran River: The river itself

This week I've been posting some resources about the Lower Raritan River as we get ready for a fall studio investigating the region. Today's resources are about the river itself.

With hurricane season upon us, watching the river go up and down becomes a popular pastime. 

After the recent storms, watching the graphs of the river gauges rise can be exciting:

Flows will change as they keep pulling out the dams along the river. Watch a couple of the dams go away.

Of course, to some, a big river is all about fishing. Here is a video of a catch on the Raritan up by Manville.
