Lake Update

Its been 6 weeks since we were closed based on a NJDEP HAB (harmful; algal bloom) test.  We were asked not to retest until the algae bloom completely dissipated.  This bloom was persistent because of repeated heavy rain events washing new nutrients into the lake throughout September.  Now that the lake is back to normal, we’ve asked the DEP to retest and we expect to be cleared by the NJ DoH soon.  

Tests for HABs is a new thing.  We’ve always tested well for the weekly bacteria tests the state requires.  But HAB tests will become more frequent, so we have to take aggressive measures to reduce the nutrients coming into our lake, e.g., support of a town septic pumping ordinance and filtering at those inlets which we have tested to be our worst source of phosphorus.  Our members can also help by pumping septic tanks every three years, using bio friendly washing liquids (Seventh Generation and Natures Promise), using less lawn fertilizer and mulch, and keeping storm drains clear.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Lake Closure

Cupsaw Lake is closed for swimming and wading due to a harmful algae bloom (HAB) with high levels of cyanobacteria in a DEP test taken this week. We will need two clean tests before we are permitted to reopen. The next test is scheduled for next Tuesday. The beach area will remain open and boating is permitted, but please exercise caution to avoid water contact.

Cupsaw Weekend Weather Update

Hopefully this will be the last weather change for Cupsaw Weekend. We are pushing the kid’s triathlon back to a 12:00 start. Please be at the lake for 11:00 check in. Bring down your bikes and we will make the call if we have the bike portion or just do the swim/run for safety reasons. The rest of the days schedule will follow with a slight delay.

Cupsaw Weekend FAQs

Get ready for the best weekend of the summer.  Join us Friday, Saturday and Sunday,

August 3rd  -5th,  for nonstop FUN.

Please see above for the entire schedule, but here are answers to some frequently asked questions.

Remember all activities can only be won by Cupsaw Lake Members:

Fab Friday: The Big Splash/Little Splash is open to both kids and adults.  See who makes the biggest and littlest splash

Lake Swim:  Both the adults and kids swim from the dam on the far side of the lake to the diving boards.  Every adult and child must have someone boating alongside them, regardless of your swimming ability.  Kids must do a buoy test swim prior to Saturday with a counselor.

Kids Triathlon:  You must sign up down at the lake by Friday at 8:00pm.  The 5 and 6 year olds do not leave the Cupsaw property.  Our 7 and 8 year olds must have a responsible adult on the course with them.  All participants must have a shirt to wear during the race to pin their number on and must be at the lake by 10:00 am to register.  There will be adults along the course to help the kids if they need it.  All riders, including adults must wear helmets.  Please let Tricia know if you are available to help.  Only Cupsaw kids may participate in this event.

Lunch:  Our Hoagie lunch will be on Saturday.  Slices of large hoagie for sale

Sand Games, Swimming and Diving:  All Cupsaw members (adults and kids) are encouraged to participate in all the events.  Guests are welcome to play but cannot win.  There will be a kickboard division for the swim races for our 5 and 6 year olds who cannot swim the 25 lanes by themselves. 

Adult Volleyball:  Please form teams prior to Saturday night.  All teams must have at least 2 women.  Teams may not have any more than two non-Cupsaw members.   All players must be over 18.

Sunday: There is a full day of events this year that will continue the fun all day Sunday.  Look at the schedule for horseshoes, kayaking, home run derby, free throw contest, Yoga and more.   

New for this year is a teen Volleyball tournament:  Please form teams of 6-7 teens.  Kids must be entering 8th grade, and no older than graduating high school.  Only one non Cupsaw member is allowed per team.
