Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Greenwood Lake at Awosting in New Jersey is a popular recreational destination for boating, fishing, and swimming. The lake is situated in the Ramapo Mountains and spans across both New Jersey and New York. Greenwood Lake was originally built in the 1830s as part of a canal system to transport goods between New York City and the Delaware River. Today, the lake is primarily fed by the Wanaque and Ringwood rivers and its hydrology is largely affected by precipitation, snowpack, and surface runoff. The lake serves as a major source of drinking water for several communities in northern New Jersey. While there are no significant agricultural uses, the lake is a popular spot for recreational fishing and boating.
