New Jersey Warns: Don’t Swim in Lake Hopatcong — Don’t Even Touch the Water


New Jersey environmental officials say people shouldn’t swim in Lake Hopatcong or even touch the water because aerial surveillance confirms the presence of an extensive harmful algal bloom.

The warning issued Thursday also urged people to not eat fish caught in the lake or windsurf, kayak, paddleboard or ride Jet Skis there. Pet owners should also keep their animals clear of the lake.
