Highland Lake Watershed Association

A Nonprofit Organization Dedicated to the Preservation and Protection of Highland Lake and Its Watershed


Weed Treatment: Due to delays in processing
and permitting, the application of Diquat
to treat the milfoil has been postponed
as the period of effectiveness has passed.
The current plans are to treat the milfoil
in late spring of 2017 as it is emerging.
This will produce the maximum benefit for the Town
dollars expended on milfoil control.

Bathing Water Testing: The Torrington
Area Health District does test the water for
E. Coli at Holland and Resha Beaches.
They are checked twice a month in June,
July and August; two samples are collected
from each beach. The samples are tested for
E. Coli. In 2016 the results were well within
the DEEP guidelines. In fact, looking back
nearly 20 years of data never have results
been high enough to warrant closing a
beach on Highland Lake.

Supermoon on November 13-14.
