The following is a brief summary of the water quality history (1974 to 2016) of Highland Lake and of some of the efforts that have been taken to protect and improve that water quality.  First there is a brief overview of the process of eutrophication.  Next, a timeline is used to chronologically track relevant conditions and events.  This is followed by discussions of the progression of water quality conditions in the lake and of the Total Maximum Daily Load Report (TMDL) that was completed in 2003.
