Devils Lake Prepared for Unfavorable Report

The White House Devils Lake Task force is set to release its recommendations next week as to what should be done regarding the level of the lake.

If the report is not favorable for the Lake Region..they are preparing to do something about it.

The city of Devils Lake has hired a law firm from Minneapolis.

It is a possibility there could be a lawsuit to determine the natural elevation of the lake and other things that the law firm could be used for.

Devils Lake Mayor Dick Johnson says its important to be prepared, they just hope there is not bad news.

Either way it has to be worked out sooner than later.

Ramsey County Commissioner Joe Belford says, "we know that its going to cost a lot of money but we cannot let this thing grow and grow and grow. We have to come up with a solution."

The report is scheduled to be released next Monday.
