Repairs to Riviera Beach Dock

All boat slip renters are asked to help with repairs to the Riviera Beach Dock located at Waterloo & Riviera Rds. Manpower needed for this repair so we ask that all slip renters be available. Repair is tentatively scheduled for  November 11, 2018. More info to follow.

Docks Out Date - Confirmed 9/30/2018

Enjoy the boating on Hopatcong NOW!  Due to the Lake Hopatcong 5-year drawdown. All boat slip renters are expected to attend “Docks Out Day” to remove floating docks. If you cannot attend or send an abled body in your place, you will incur a penalty of $50 which will be used to hire hands in your absence.  The Lake drawdown begins 9/22/18. On this date, the gates of the Lake Hopatcong Dam shall be opened to release sufficient water to reduce the surface elevation by 1.5 inches per day to complete and maintain a 60 inch drawdown through December 15.

Lifeguards Needed for 2019 Season

Anyone interested in being a lifeguard for EPHA next summer should contact a board member. EPHA will reimburse your lifeguard certification over two years. 

Lake Hopatcong Community Clean-up - Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 8am to noon.

 As the Lake Hopatcong community prepares for another 5 year 60 inch drawdown this fall, the Lake Hopatcong Foundation and the Lake Hopatcong Commission are organizing volunteers to help remove debris from the exposed lakebed in an effort to make the lake a healthier place. More information at https://lakehopatcongfoundation.org/cleanup2018/ Those EPHA members wishing to participate in this clean up at the beach property should coordinate with EPHA member, Brian Kash at 973-477-8167 or Mike Purdue at 201-230-7130. Helpful tools to bring to the beach club are gloves, boots that you don’t mind getting muddy, and pails.

Trash and Recycle Material - Carry In / Carry Out during Non-Summer months

EPHA beach grounds becomes a Carry In / Carry Out property starting November 1. This means any trash or recycle material you generate while using the clubhouse and grounds must be removed by you. There is no dumpster or garbage pick up during non-summer months.

Winter Boat Storage Limited this Year

Because this is a lake draw-down year and we will be dredging the lake area around our beach, the area where we typically have winter boat storage will be temporarily filled with organic lake mud. If you wish to purchase winter boat storage, please contact Bob Feltwater @ 973-713-2207 to make arrangements. There will be room for only a limited number of boats so you may have an opportunity to buy storage on a first come first serve basis. Cost for winter storage is $125 and must be paid up front.
