Highland Lake Lowering Notification

Starting Friday, October 30, 2020, we will begin Highland Lake’s water lowering process, which will allow lakefront property owners to perform their dock repairs, place rip rap, clean the exposed lake bottom along the shoreline, and perform other waterfront improvements. This process will cease by November 30th.

Lakefront property owners should take actions necessary to protect their personal property. This includes, but is not limited to, adjusting pontoon retaining lines and/or properly securing or removing all boats, canoes and kayaks.

Owners planning improvements to their docks or shorelines are advised to consult the DEP and Brenda Day, Code Enforcement Officer, for allowed improvements or permits required prior to doing so. If you have any questions regarding which improvements require approval, please contact Brenda at or call (207) 803-9963.

Thank you for your cooperation.
