The mission of the Deal Lake Commission is to provide leadership, guidance and resources to preserve and restore Deal Lake and its tributaries as a healthy and stable ecosystem. By actively serving as stewards of Deal Lake and its Watershed, our goals include:

  • Educating the community, including our school children, to increase awareness and appreciation for the natural environment of the lake
  • Providing leadership concerning issues related to Deal Lake within and outside our community
  • Helping homeowners and public groups recognize and mindfully solve problems related to water quality, siltation, and lake restoration
  • Serving as the liaison between lakeside communities, County agencies, and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to implement a Regional Storm Water Management Plan
  • Proactively suggesting practical ideas to improve overall the environmental quality of properties throughout the Deal Lake watershed
