Pennacchio & Oroho Tour Lake Hopatcong with Senate President Sweeney

MORRIS COUNTY — Senator Joe Pennacchio (R-26) and Senator Steven Oroho (R-24) joined Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-3) for a boat tour of Lake Hopatcong today to gain a first-hand understanding of the blue-green algae blooms that caused the lake and others across New Jersey to be closed for recreation for much of the summer.

After the tour, Pennacchio and Oroho issued the following statement:

“We were glad to have the opportunity to join local officials and the Senate President for today’s tour of Lake Hopatcong. Before his untimely death, our dear colleague Senator Bucco was scheduled to join us. We are sure Tony was there in spirit.

“We received a commitment from the Senate President that Lake Hopatcong, Greenwood Lake, and all impacted New Jersey lakes would get much-needed help.

“Further, we will be meeting with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to get badly needed answers to some important questions.

“We are committed to working together to ensure these lakes are never closed again.”
