News Flash – No SolarBees on Devils Lake

DLWID June Board Meeting

After hearing from nearly 50 people tonight, the Devils Lake Water Improvement District Board voted unanimously to defer any further action toward placement of SolarBees on Devils Lake. 

 

More specifically the resolution made by Otis Winchester read;

“I move that we defer further actions toward pursuing SolarBees until we have more information regarding the nature, extent and effects of cyanobacteria and learn more about the safety experience with SolarBees on other recreational lakes.”

In other actions the Board created a permanent Communications Committee staffed by members of the community to advise the board in improving communication to lake users.

This result is proof that public involvement can really work, that said its tiring, and I’m not home yet.  So I’ll provide more details after a good night’s sleep.  Thank you all for your support.
