A Public Health Warning Has Been Issued For This Massive New Jersey Lake

Summer is here and we just can’t wait to dip our toes in the water! Sadly, we won’t be doing that at New Jersey’s largest lake any time soon. There’s a dangerous algae bloom at Lake Hopatcong and here’s what you need to know…
