Many changes have come to the Lake Region this past year in the fight against flood waters and now the public will get a chance to tour the changes with local water experts.

The public is invited on a bus tour of flood affected areas on September sixth. The tour will visit numerous sites, including the east end outlet, Grahams Island state park and the Tolna Coulee control structure. The public tours have gone on for more than a decade but last year was the first year there were two public tours. Devils Lake Joint Water Board manager Jeff Frith says the tours are becoming more and more popular with the public, even those far from the Lake Region.

Frith: “The tour is just for educational purposes to help people from not only from the Devils Lake Basin but throughout the entire state and throughout the entire region, to help educate them about what's going on in the Devils Lake Basin.”

Tickets cost 20 dollars and include a meal and subscription to "North Dakota Water" magazine. You can order tickets by calling the Devils Lake Joint Water Resource Board or visiting their website at http://www.dlbasin.com
