The Hammonton Lake Water Quality Advisory Committee was established in 2007, following years of concern about the quality of the waters of what is considered the “Jewel of Hammonton”. Many residents recalled swimming in Hammonton Lake all through their childhood, and the cessation of swimming in the years immediately prior to the Committee’s creation gave rise to alarm that the Lake had become too polluted, and posed a threat to the health of area residents. Since then, the Committee has worked to identify and eliminate potential sources of pollution in the Lake, and is addressing ways to improve the overall health of the surrounding environment. It is guided primarily by its Hammonton Lake management Plan, most recently updated in 2018.
