About this location:
This impounded lake, created in the early 20th century, is the source of the Wallkill River. At the time that the lake was created, the area was used for farming and livestock, and the historical headwaters flowed through pasture. The Mohawk Lake Association now owns the lake and permits Riverkeeper's sampling partners to access the spillway for sampling. There are several swimming beaches along the lakeshore.
