Will the harmful algae blooms from Lake Hopatcong impact the Musconetcong River?

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) has reported Harmful Algae Blooms (HABs) on Lake Hopatcong, located in the Musconetcong River Watershed headwaters. Because HABs are a health concern, the Department has advised the public to avoid activities that might bring them into contact with lake water such as swimming, wading, water-skiing, kayaking, windsurfing, and paddle boarding, and fish caught in the lake should definitely not be eaten. HABs are also highly toxic to pets, livestock and wildlife, so appropriate steps should be taken to prevent these animals from drinking lake water, and unusual deaths or behavior of wildlife near the lake should be reported.
