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.

    Tips for Homeowners

    Considering Landscaping by the Lake or Building a Dock?

    KNOW the Land Use regulations BEFORE you dig!

    The banks of Deal Lake are regulated and protected by the Dept. of Land Use.

    Typically any land 50 feet above the lake shore line falls under the Permit by Rule regulations. 7:13

    Geese Control


    Goose lighting controls:   This lighting system is now being tested successfully at our sister lake (Wesley) between Asbury and Ocean Grove.  Will discuss further this winter weather we install in our western storm water ponds.

    A major problem with Canadian Geese is their prodigious droppings. Each and every day, a Canadian goose residing in New Jersey eats 2-3 pounds of grass and deposits approximately 1-2 pounds of droppings on your lawn or your neighbors.  This is unhealthy for you and family as well as our Lake. How can you help?  Hire a contractor to spray an application to grass to rid your lawn of geese. Bad tasting grass chases geese away and does not harm any other animals.

    The DLC contracted this year with Cowley pest control to spray Rejex-it® Migrate at various spots around the lake with wonderful results: 

    Boat ramp in Asbury and  the park between Asbury and Wanamassa.
