I think many folks would be surprised to learn how interconnected our water supply systems are.  Not only here in NJ, but all over.  How many know that Lake Hopatcong is an emergency water supply for Jersey City, for example?  In that case, water is pumped from LH over the mountain to the Rockaway River where it flows south into the Jersey City reservoir in Parsippany.  One of many examples.  

Hopefully the river will filter out some of that toxic toilet water before it reaches the JC reservoir in Parsippany.

It would take millions of freshwater mussels to accomplish that, but the Rockaway is not freshwater mussel habitat.  Sorry, turned river geek for a moment there.  :nerd:

They entirely changed the ecosystem of Lake Erie!  But we don't want any more invasive mussels here.  They are now in the lower Musky....

Not sure anyone wants that LH water these days.
