Information Source These regulations apply to Lake George Park, the boundaries of which are defined on the Commission's website:


The Lake George Park Commission is a quasi-independent commission within the Department of Environmental Protection that is responsible for environmental conservation in the Lake George Park area. The Commission has established guideline regulations for local stormwater management. The regulations are designed to prevent any increase in stormwater runoff from any development in order to reduce flooding, siltation and streambank erosion; to prevent any increase in pollution caused by stormwater runoff from development which would otherwise degrade the quality of water in Lake George and its tributaries and render it unfit for human consumption, interfere with water based recreation or adversely affect aquatic life; and to ensure that the total annual volume of surface water runoff which flows from any specific site during and following development shall not exceed that which prevailed prior to development. The regulations require permits to be obtained prior to development, construction, or land clearing within the Lake George Park and list standards to be followed by current developments. Some exemptions may apply.
