Longtime Ramsey County Commissioner Joe Belford is being honored for his decades of work with Devils Lake water.

The Devils Lake Basin Joint Board has given Belford the Water Stewardship award. It recognizes his 36 years as a city and county commissioner. Belford has been helping fight the Devils Lake flood since water began rising in 1993 but he's been working on water issues even longer, since back when there were concerns that the lake was too low. Belford says he'll continue working on water issues. He plans to run for President of the Red River Basin Commission next year.
