Devils Lake outlet starts operations again
Grand Forks North Dakota 375 2nd Ave. N. 58203

Devils Lake outlets began discharging water Monday, the State Water Commission said.

All gages on the upper Sheyenne River, where the discharged water will go, show river levels decreasing.

Bruce Engelhardt, director of the state Water Development Division, said this will be the earliest discharge for the outlet on the east end of Devils Lake. The goal is to continue bringing the flooded lake down, he said.
