Lake Hopatcong Historic Flood of 2000 Virtual Exhibit

Calendar   LHF Events
Location Online
Date Tuesday, May 10, 2022 (all day)
Duration   52 days

This year marks the 22nd anniversary of a historic flood that took place at Lake Hopatcong, after three days of heavy rain pounded our region from August 12-14, 2000. The storm concentrated on a 10-mile radius of Sparta, dropping some four times the average rainfall for the entire month of August in just a few short days, leaving homes and businesses flooded.  

Visit a virtual exhibit of personal photographs depicting the devastation caused by the historic flood of 2000, as well as the resiliency of the Lake Hopatcong community who helped each other and worked to rebuild after the unprecedented storm. The exhibit will be available until June 30.
