Lake Hopatcong, N.J. (August 7, 2019) On a sunny Monday afternoon in mid July, a single runabout motors its way Lake Hopatcong. Perched on the front deck of the motorboat, Rae Hartwell is taking video of whatever wildlife she can spot—herons, turtles, cormorants, and an eagle soaring overhead.

The Lake Hopatcong Foundation, in cooperation with the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, continues its exploration of water’s environmental and cultural impact as they host the local showing of “Water/Ways,” a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition.

On Wednesday, July 31, 2019 the NJDEP testing results showed decrease in almost all areas of Lake Hopatcong, as measured by aerial and physical testing. At this time Indian Harbor is the only area that is not under the advisory (Open to swimming).
