To our Lake Community,  We have Just received this   press release   which states we have a serious Harmful Algal Bloom ( HAB ) All water activities where you could come in contact with the water should be halted until further notice. The lake is open to boating and fishing, but do not come in contact with the water in New Jersey.  The Greenwood Lake Commission has commissioned Montclair State University to do a comprehensive testing program Friday July 19th. It will consist of testing for 9 elements at 17 locations throughout New Jersey and New York. This will help us identify the sources and check whether the toxins are on the move or concentrated and stationary.  As more information becomes available, the Greenwood Lake Commission will be updating our web site.  Thank you,
