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.

    Weed Treatment Status

    Current Status

    The Deal Lake Commission on 14 June 2018 treated Terrace pond section of Deal lake (South of William Larkin Golf Course) with a herbicide called ​Nautique. Its a copper based herbicide that we use all the time on golf course irrigation ponds. It has very low aquatic toxicity and no impact on turf. It has no irrigation use restrictions. The label and MSDS are attached. If required, retreatment would be later in July.
