    MINUTES – REGULAR MEETING

    June 21, 2018

     

    OLD BUSINESS

     

    1. Flume Electrification – Don Brockel, Commission Chairman, gave a brief update.

     

    Hunt Parry, Commission Attorney reported that we are still working out details with Ocean Township on the funding and reimbursement Agreement.

     

    1. Interlaken to Loch Arbour Bridge Update – Mr. Avakian said the Contractor has agreed to remove the sediment from the lake as he is progressing with the punchlist items. There is still no date on when they will return to complete the project. 

     

    1. 319(h) Grant – Mr. Brockel reported that it is still in legal review.

     

    1. Organic Material Removal from Fireman’s Pond – No Update.

     

    1. Water Testing – Mr. Brockel reported that testing at various locations on the lake is still being done. We hope to have a report from Dr. Tiedemann at the September meeting. 

     

    1. Deal Lake Master Plan – Mr. Brockel said he will be forwarding a digital copy of the Master Plan with the comments and changes that have been discussed.  We hope to have it finalized for the August meeting.

    1. Weed Treatment – Dr. Souza reported that last Thursday the Terrace Pond section of the lake was treated with a new herbicide that has no use restrictions.  The residents and the golf course can still use the lake water after the treatment to irrigate with no side effects.  He looked at it today but it takes a good ten to fourteen days for it to work.  The treatment does not affect water lilies or algae.  If required, there may be another treatment later in July.
