Lake DeForest Reservoir Kayak Challenge Winners

Lake DeForest was opened to a large public event on its waters for the first time in its history last Saturday.

Presented by reservoir’s owner United Water Company – New  York and sponsored by O&R, the full-day paddling event was held to raise  money for the operations of the Hackensack Riverkeeper in its mission to  protect, preserve and restore the Hackensack River.    “O&R and United Water New York are natural partners in  this exciting, new event,” said O&R’s President and CEO Tim Cawley.  “O&R is a long-time supporter of the Hackensack Riverkeeper and we are  deeply involved in a number of events like Lake DeForest Day that promote the  environment.”- See more at:
