A long soaking rain was what the landscape needed but a lot more will have to fall to bring the aquifers back up.

Almost every creek and river in the entire Delaware River Basin continues to run below normal including the Delaware River itself. Check the Musconetcong gage at Bloomsbury and the Delaware River gage at Belvidere. The river is running about 5000 CFS lower for this time of year.

The Tohickon Creek is a rare exception as it's running just higher than normal for this date.

This being April we can reasonably expect more rain to fall in the coming weeks.
