Below is a letter i wrote to NJDEP and NJDFW Concerning construction/restoration plans of a lake in mercer county. does anyone have any insight on the issue?


I recently read in my local paper about a project funded by the NJ DEP to
clean up Robert Martin Lake in Veterans Park. I agree the lake may not be in its most
beautifull form and it was certainly not mentioned that way in the artical, it was
described as a nasty swamp. But my concern is this swampy area has become home to a
good sized population of Common snapping turtles. I have witnessed breeding, eggs,
and hatchlings in this area along with various sightings of Eastern Painted turtles, and
numerous frog species. My concern is the way this area was described as somewhat
lifeless im afraid there is little care being taken to concerve these animals. If you have
any info i would greatly apreciate it.

The largest male snapper in this area which we have named "big jim" is a old
freind of mine and would hate to see anything happen to him or any of the other wildlife
during the construction/resoration of the lake.

Thank you for your time,
Bill Ski
