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.

    New Jersey Fertilizer Law

    The New Jersey Fertilizer Law was conceived to protect all New Jersey surface and
    ground waters from impairment by minimizing nitrogen and phosphorus loading that
    may be derived from lawn fertilizer. Generally, excess nitrogen is a threat to coastal
    water (estuaries) quality while excess phosphorus is a greater concern for fresh water
    quality. Both nutrients are also important for plant growth and health.
