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.

    KNOW the Land Use regulations BEFORE you dig!

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

    Weed Treatment Status

    Current Status

    During the 16 April meeting of the DLC, the DLC approved the treatment of two area of Deal Lake, Terrace Pond and the western end of the Sunset Arm.  The combined acreage of the two targeted areas totals approximately 8 acres, which is about 5% of the total lake surface.  The two areas have been targeted for treatment based on input and comment received over the past three years from the public, as well as my personal inspection of both sites, once again conducted over the past three years.   A full write up of the project and it’s concerns plus issues with Tree removal is here
