Updated Hopatcong Lake Levels as of 05/02/2016
As we enter May and the start of the ideal boating season, we find that the lake has only risen to 8.3 feet since the last reading on 04/20.2016. While we are well within the depth necessary, lets hope that the next week that is forecasted full of rain raises the level a little more, just in case of a dry summer.
