Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area – National Park Rangers are investigating an illegal dumping incident at Hidden Lake.
An unknown individual or individuals dumped household trash and construction materials at Hidden Lake, which is located on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in Monroe County, between Thursday night and Friday morning.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the National Park’s Communications Center at 570-426-2457.
“Sadly, this is not an unusual occurrence in the park. Unless the person who did this is found, the cost of cleaning it all up and properly disposing of it will fall on the NPS and all of you as taxpayers,” authorities said.
