The Lake Hopatcong Foundation will try new ways of controlling weeds on the lake.

As reported by NorthJersey.com

Marty Kane, president of the foundation, presented an update to the Jefferson Township Council at its Wednesday, Sept. 7, meeting.

He said the foundation spent time researching hydroraking. Hydroraking won't work on the entire lake. It can only be used in shallow areas, Kane explained, but it works well in areas of 10-foot or less depth when there are few rocks. And, he added, it doesn't require a dredging permit which is expensive, although the foundation would attempt to get a single permit for the entire lake.

Bright's Cove in Jefferson and Landing Channel in Roxbury are the two pilot areas, Kane said.
