Hundreds Attend Meeting On Lake Hopatcong, Swim Ban Remains

Monday night New Jersey's Department Of Environmental Protection Commissioner Catherine McCabe met in Hopatcong High School's cafeteria with approximately 2-300 people. Concerned residents, businesses and others attended.

The DEP has warned this advisory could be in place for weeks. Experts can't even attempt to predict how long this advisory situation, where we are advised to not come into any contact nor drink the water, may last. Coming into contact with the infected water can give rashes and ingesting it can make you sick. We have always loved exploring the many restaurants and bars all around Lake Hopatcong. Hopefully this situation resolves itself very quickly. I would like to point out that even though you don't want to swim in the Lake, the restaurants and bars all around Lake Hopatcong are still open for business.

The DEP is also telling our friends at NJ Herald that this natural problem basically has to fix itself.
