Next DLC meeting will be March 16. Interlaken Townhall, 100 Grasmere Ave at 7PM

The DLC was chartered in 1974 by the 7 shore line towns. Our mission is to provide leadership, guidance, and resources to preserve and restore Deal Lake and its tributaries as a healthy and stable ecosystem. In addition, control lake levels during heavy storms to the best of our ability with limited ocean tide controls.

    End of Summer Cleanup – Saturday, Sept 20th

    Deal Lake September Cleanup Crew












    A great day on the lake.  We could not have ask for a better day and better workers.   Another few tons of trash out of our Deal Lake, but the pile was smaller than pervious clean-ups.  Which is a good sign. …Thanks to 25 folks all that helped out!


    Oct 25th we be having another clean-up in conjunction with Monmouth University’s BIG EVENT day.   A 9am start at the boat ramp.

    We will not lower the lake to it’s full extent (just to top of Dam) but we encourage folks with boats to head out on the lake to do as much clean-up along the shorelines we cannot walk too.   Be safe and wear your life jackets and do your best to rid the lake of that unwanted trash and debris.

    Rowers we would love to see you out there……
