The goal of the Lake Musconetcong Regional Planning Board is to restore Lake Musconetcong to the vibrant community uses of the past.
Our lake management plans are comprised of a multi-pronged approach to control invasive weed growth and water quality of the lake and it's environs. Through the use of mechanical, chemical and biological treatments we will remove all of the invasive plant species, reduce the amount of biological "muck" and increase the usable water column in the lake. This proven approach will ensure a better quality of life for the residents and increase the recreational opportunity for the population.
