We live in a town in NJ called Mount Arlington. It is a lake front community on Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey’s largest lake.
There are a myriad of problems concerning the lake at this time and certainly the people who live on the lake and conduct business on the lake each have a different reason not to be encouraged by the way the lake is being cared for politically, judicially, environmentally, economically and socially. We will cover some of these issues now that summer is upon us and when the lake is used the most.
The SaveNJLake Website is intended to assemble and disseminate information about the negative conditions currently affecting the Lake Hopatcong.
Because of what appears to be neglect and due to lack of money, New Jersey’s largest man made natural resource is deteriorating into a cesspool of fish carcasses, paper, plastic bottles and overgrown ecological growth that is causing deterioration to the communities that surround it.
It is our hope that word will spread as a result of this website, and those whom are politically active will hear what is happening here and hopefully apply some of their resources to make a difference to a very important problem that is affecting New Jersey and its residents.
It is our desire to educate people about this problem and give the residents and business owners who are already affected by this problem, a place to share their thoughts and opinions regarding this matter. The ultimate goal is to restore Lake Hopatcong to a condition that is environmentally safe for the community who uses it and ultimately make it better place for NJ residents and those who may visit the lake from out of state.
Please take the time to look around and read some of the articles and information about the problems at Lake Hopatcong. Please feel free to express yourself and share your opinions and ideas about how the community can effectively deal with this problem.
The information provided on this site is published by those who are affected by this problem and who have donated their time in an effort to raise public awareness regarding the negative effects this problem has caused the lakefront communities located around New Jersey’s largest lake.
