Christmas Eve Rescue at Round Valley Reservoir

On December 24, 2019 the Clinton First Aid & Rescue Squad was dispatched to the Round Valley Recreation Area for a report of 3 individuals stuck in mud. Due to the nature of the incident, the Hunterdon County Technical Rescue Task Force was dispatched and responded with specialized training and equipment resources. This is the second incident of similar nature at the Round Valley Recreation Area in the month of December. 

A dam rehabilitation project has required the lowering of the water in the reservoir, leaving areas that are typically covered by water exposed and open to park-goers. 

The Office of Emergency Management urges those visiting the facility to do so safely. Hiking trails are well marked for those in the park on foot.  Avoid all surfaces typically covered by water.  Those visiting should be aware of their location within the Park and should carry cellphones so they can summon assistance, if needed. 

The NJ Division of Parks and Forestry is posting guidance and updates to the Round Valley Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/RoundValleyRecreationArea/
