Coalition of Lake Associations


Living on or near a lake brings unique pleasures. At the same time, problems arise creating the need for information and education. Lake home owners, concerned citizens, lake associations and environmental professionals joined together to meet that need with the formation of NJCOLA.

The New Jersey Coalition of Lake Associations is united for the purpose of Sharing their experience in lake water and community association management , Increasing their knowledge of lake association problems and alternative solutions, Building a strong political voice which can help formulate legislation favorable to the preservation of all lake communities as natural resources.

We hold frequent informative and educational meetings and workshops on various relevant topics.

NJCOLA plays a part in political situations where it affects NJ lakes such as Bathing Regulations, Dam Regulations, NJDEP, and The Kelly Law.

Together with lake community associations, individuals, municipality officials, professionals and specialty organizations, we are dedicated to protecting and preserving our lakes and ponds.
