    OLD BUSINESS

    1. Flood Hazard Risk Reduction Resiliency Grant Program – Mr. Avakian reported that the grant was submitted on behalf of the Deal Lake Commission in
    mid-April. They have been overwhelmed with applications and are not even close to completing the reviews. He also forwarded the letter of support from
    Congressman Pallone. He again reviewed what projects the DLC is looking to address with this Grant. The Loch Arbour representative said she will reach out
    to her neighbors that had damage from Super Storm Sandy that was not reported.

    2. Beach Replenishment Mr. Brockel said he is still waiting to hear from the ACoE regarding the sluice gate contract.

    Mr. Avakian said he is concerned that they overfilled the beach too close to the flume. He will keep an eye on it.

    3. Sunset Avenue Bridge Replacement – Mr. Brockel said the bridge is basically done except for a few minor issues. They are still working
    on the bottom of the bridge and will landscape in the fall, but overall it looks pretty good.

    4. Deal Lake Master Plan – Upon a motion from Interlaken, seconded by Ocean it was moved to table this item until the fall. All were in favor.

    Mr. Avakian is meeting with the Contractor tomorrow and he will find out the answers to the questions and concerns of the Commissioners. He also pointed

    6. Watershed AmbassadorNot present at the meeting. No report.

    7. 319(h) Grant – Dr. Souza said the DEP is still reviewing the applications and should make an announcement in the next month or so.

    Services for the summer of 2016.

    Mr. Nissim the Interlaken representative, suggested reaching out Professor Tiedemann from Monmouth University to see if he has a program where they can
    recruit some students to do the monitoring. Dr. Souza said he would reach out to Professor Tiedemann.

    10. NRCS – Mr. Brockel reported that technically the project is closed. The DEP is aware that there is an issue with the lack of grass growing back in some
    spots and they are monitoring the site.

    NEW BUSINESS

    2. Mr. Brockel said that he will be attending a free workshop on June 29 given by the EPA Region 2 and NJDEP. The workshop will address the ways
    that their agencies use water quality data received to identify and prioritize waterways restoration.

    3. Dean’s Natural Market – Mr. Brockel said he has received plans for the DLC to review that were submitted to the Ocean Township Planning Board from
    Dean’s Natural Market. After reviewing the plans, the DLC has major issues with the removal of trees and the lack of non-compliance with stormwater
