Both Devils Lake outlets are now pumping water off Devils Lake. The west end outlet near Minnewaukan came online Monday.

It's pumping 250 cubic feet of water per second from Devils Lake into the Sheyenne River. The west end outlet is combining with the east end outlet near Tolna to pump 500 cubic feet per second off the lake. Officials hope together the two outlets can take more than a foot of water off Devils Lake before freeze-up.
