Please note that these meetings have moved to City Hall Council Chambers, which are located on the third floor of City Hall.

The presentation that will be made by Tetra Tech is very important because by design, it should address key issues such as the loss of shoreline to inundation, loss or change in plant community along the shore which may lead to erosion or shoreline loss, impacts to wetlands and wetland hydrology, impacts to structures, direct erosion of the shoreline, plus others. The District specifically requested that the study consider how wave energy, both natural and man made, impact the shoreline as a result of having the lake held at 9.53’ (full exercise of water right), at 9.0’ (partial exercise of water right), and if the lake was to be allowed a natural hydrology without impoundment.

Over the coming months the District will use this study to determine how to manage, lake level and shoreline development including restorations projects and potential restrictions on development as contemplated in the Devils Lake Plan.  This will be an important presentation for individuals interested in Devils Lake.

If you cannot attend this month’s meeting; it will appear on Channel 4 for all Charter customers. You can check the Channel 4 Schedule for airing times. The best way to stay informed is for all lake front homeowners and interested parties to attend these important meetings.
