DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - A water board in the Devils Lake region

is considering a video documentary about the flooding problems.

Devils Lake Basin Joint Water Resource Board manager Jeff Frith

says a documentary might help make the case to a larger audience

that a solution to the flooding needs to be found.

Frith says the project would cost about $35,000. He says that's

too much for the board to afford, and he'll be surveying the

community to find out how much support there is for helping with

the financing.

Devils Lake has risen about 27 feet and tripled in size since

1993 because of a series of wet years, causing hundreds of millions

of dollars in damage.
