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

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

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.
