Author: John Kurzman - It is really terrific that it appears that the DEP has taken our requests into consideration, and rather than stop the refill at 30 inches or 26 inches, has allowed the refill to go to 7.13', which is the equivalent of a 22-inch drawdown, the same as a regular annual drawdown. This now positions the lake for a regular refill in the springtime!
Lake Hopatcong has recovered from the five-foot drawdown to hold steady at seven-feet at the dam. This is the level the lake will be maintained until the spring refill to allow for ice build-up.
One of the real joys of the Holiday Season is this opportunity to say thank you to our supporters and friends for all you have helped us accomplish over the past year. Without you we wouldn’t have been able to:
We at the Lake Hopatcong Foundation are thrilled to be ringing in the new year in our new home at the Lake Hopatcong Train Station building (finally)!
The refilling of Lake Hopatcong officially starts today, and it’s going to be a race with nature to see if we can recover 60 inches of water by spring.
Since December 15th Lake Hopatcong has risen by two-feet to reach the level of six-feet as measured at the dam. This will leave just three more feet to go before we reach the ideal nine-foot level in time for the boating season.

This annual event takes place every February at the Hopatcong State Park and is designed to raise money for special needs kids.
As 2018 comes to a close, we hope it will be the perfect opportunity to include the Lake Hopatcong Foundation in your year-end giving.
