The State Water Commission is working with engineering firms to finalize the design of an east Devils Lake outlet and expects to award a bid for piping and pipe materials by late May.

Construction is expected to begin this summer when weather and ground conditions permit.

Governor Jack Dalrymple has approved two executive orders that allow the State Water Commission to expedite the construction of an east-end outlet and the construction of a control structure at Tolna Coulee.

The project was developed in collaboration with officials of Valley City and the Spirit Lake Nation, as well as Devils Lake and Ramsey County.
