    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
