As New Jersey’s largest coastal lake, Deal Lake benefits the residents of coastal Monmouth County in many ways. Easily accessible for recreation, the lake not only diversifies our local ecology, but increases local property values. It is imperative that we as a community address the damaging effects of stormwater runoff and the steady declination of this treasured asset.
In partnership with Clean Ocean Action, Rutgers & Monmouth Universities, and the Deal Lake Commission the DLWA will collaborate on ways to engage citizens, communities, and municipal leaders to take action to reduce runoff, which is the main cause of shoreline erosion, sediment buildup and toxins that pollute our lake as well as the ocean.
Our lake is disappearing. We're changing that.
