The DLWID sponsored the Devils Lake Dunk, at 11 a.m. Jan. 1 at Regatta Park in Lincoln City. This was the third year for this fun event and a record 26 participants ran into the 43 degree water. We look a series of pictures of the event so follow this link to take a look.
Construction Begins On D-Lake Irrigation Line
The Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians took another step toward the eventual use of water from Devils Lake for watering the Golf Course with the commencement of construction of a new irrigation line on December 22nd. The new line crosses under Hwy 101 just East of West Devils Lake Drive and enters the lake across from the Blue Heron Marina.
The Tribe obtained the contractual use of a historical water right originally used as the water supply to Oceanlake, when the Lincoln City Council approved an agreement contemplated in May 2010 between the City and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians. With their approval in the Aug 22, 2011 meeting, the City Council entered into an agreement for the City to lease part of its senior water rights on Rock Creek for use on the golf course. The DLWID captured this recent construction with a series of photographs including the one shown here. The remaining photos can be viewed on the Districts Facebook page. For more information on the transaction, see City and Siletz Tribe Answer Citizens Questions.
The DLWID wants to make sure you don’t miss the Devils Lake Dunk, 11 a.m. Jan. 1 at Regatta Park in Lincoln City. All are invited. Three will win glass floats donated by the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau. Donuts & coffee will be available.
A video from last years event surfaced on Oregon Coast Today’s Facebook page. Enjoy this brief look into how some brave soles bring in the new year on Devils Lake and dig that bathing suit out of the drawer and come on down and take the plunge.

Erosion Study Presented January 5, 2012 6:00pm
The Devils Lake Water Improvement District has conducted an erosion study to determine if and how the lake level impacts erosion on properties surrounding Devils Lake. Tetra Tech presented their evaluation of the lake resulting from the fieldwork that occurred this spring at last month’s DLWID Board meeting. While the agenda has not yet been posted for this month’s meeting on Thursday January 5th at 6:00pm, we anticipate some board discussion will occur related to the erosion study revisions requested last month. Please note that these meetings have moved to City Hall Council Chambers, which are located on the third floor of City Hall.
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.
There are several topics of importance to lake residents on this month’s agenda. Due to the importance of this month’s meeting we sent this notice prior to the District posting the meeting documents, the links should function once the documents have been uploaded.
At this joyous time of year, we are grateful for all of our friends around Devils Lake. We wish you abundance, happiness, and peace in a new year filled with hope. Happy holidays!
