Devils Lake Outlets Shutting Down For The Year

Posted: Updated:

The floodwater diversion outlets on the west and east ends of Devils Lake are being shut down for the year.

State Water Commission engineer Bruce Engelhardt tells KZZY radio that much colder temperatures are expected next week and officials don't want to take any chances with the weather damaging equipment.

Engelhardt says the two outlets took about a foot of water off the lake this year. The west-end outlet started operations for the season in April. The new east-end outlet did not come online until June, and it had to be shut down for a few days last month for repairs.
