Candidate Profile: Douglas Pirie

Director, Position 2, 4-year term ending June 30, 2015

The Mission of the Devils Lake Water Improvement District is to:

  • Improve and maintain water quality
  • Improve the environment for fish, wildlife and humans
  • Increase public access to Devils Lake
  • Reestablish safe and efficient navigation

I live on Devils Lake on the Lincoln County east side, and have a passion for using my kayaks and two Hobie Cat sailboats on a beautiful lake, free of weeds, algae and sewage.

During my residency on Devils Lake I have kept informed on issues that face the lake as well as the plans that are in place to address them through my attendance at the majority of DLWID board meetings and serving on the budget committee.

I would like the opportunity to provide my experience in coastal engineering to the DLWID as a Board Member.
