On July 22, 2019, the Lake Hopatcong Commission organized another meeting to go over the history of the Lake, and to discuss Short – Mid – Long-Range plans on the current Harmful Algae Blooms.
The review of the lake history showed that when the lake was funded by the State, the factors that cause Harmful Algae Blooms diminished, but as funding was pulled back in 2010 the lake has grown worse over the years.
After the presentation on the Short – Mid – Long-Range plans was presented by Princeton Hydro, the residents of Lake Hopatcong showed that their patience in waiting for answers is starting to reach their limits.
For tonight, we will leave you with the video of four Mayors (Mount Arlington, Roxbury, Hopatcong and Jefferson) that also asked tough questions and demanded answers. (Additionally, Michael Frances, the Mayor of Hopatcong Borough seems to sum up the frustration of the residents during his open conversation with the Community and Government Officials at the meeting.
Hopatcong Lake Regional News will be posting each presentation on Tuesday. In the meantime, you can see the full version of the meeting here.
Catch all four in the Series:
