The board consists of seven members and three alternates each serving five year terms. The board and chairperson are appointed by the Township Council.
This committee was established to deal with the maintenance and management of Township owned lakes, ponds, and the wildlife habitat existing within the Township. Due to the acquisition of large tracts of contiguous lands by the Township, consideration has to be given to the surface waters that exist within them and the wildlife that are dependent upon them for their survival. It is recognized that this interrelationship can only be maintained in a healthy state by monitoring these two activities so that they complement each other.
