Levels in tidal waters are measured from mean sea level, not from the river bed. They can, therefore, be negative, and do not give any indication of water depth. Tidal levels are not necessarily updated frequently, and may not reflect tidal movements throughout the day.

The normal level of the Dartford Creek Barrier UR in average weather conditions is between -2.14m and 5.31m. It has been between these levels for at least 151 days in the past year.

The usual range of the Dartford Creek Barrier UR in more extreme weather conditions is between -1.94m and 4.16m. It has been between these levels for 90% of the time since monitoring began.
