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.

    Floating Wetland Islands

    Floating Wetland Islands Installed – Thank You to All Volunteers

    The Deal Lake Commission would like to thank the 30+ volunteers who helped install 6 floating wetland islands in Sunset Lake and 6 in Wesley Lake on June 16 and 17. We’d also like to thank the City of Asbury Park for their assistance with this project.

    The Deal Lake Commission was awarded a Clean Water Act Section 319(h) grant by the Environmental Protection Agency to install the islands, with the help of aquatic engineers from Princeton Hydro.

    Floating Wetland Islands improve water quality of stormwater runoff and manage watershed nutrients, as well as treatment of wastewater and other industrial contaminants through natural processes. In addition, the Floating Wetland Islands present an excellent educational opportunity for the community.
    More information about Floating Wetland Islands can be found here.
