(Jeff Frith, Devils Lake Joint Water Resource Board) "Go up three feet, come down a foot, go back up two. It's a constant battle here in Devils Lake."

Jeff Frith has been fighting the one step forward, two steps back battle since the start. He's the Manager of the Devils Lake Basin Joint Water Resource Board and has watched as one-and-a-half billion dollars has been spent to protect towns, build up roads and rail lines, and moving homes and businesses. But even with most major protection projects about done, he says the costs are still mounting in rural areas.
(Jeff Frith, Devils Lake Joint Water Resource Board) "We had an NDSU study this year that estimated it's going to be another 200 million dollars loss for the region because of the unproductive land that's under water."
And Frith says there's not much help to offer to farmers and ranchers who've lost land - or access to land.
(Jeff Frith, Devils Lake Joint Water Resource Board) "There's really no help for the rural resident who, some of them have 20-30 feet of water on their property and been out of business for a number of years and there's been no relief for those other than the flood insurance for their buildings."
...
(Jeff Frith, Devils Lake Joint Water Resource Board) "The amount of water in the Sheyenne and Red River valleys have been too high to turn the pumps on yet. That's one of the stipulations of operating the outlets is that we can't turn them on to help alleviate our flooding situation and in turn flood somebody else."
Those outlets removed an estimated one to 1-and-a-half feet of water from the big lake last year - when conditions for their operation were perfect. This year?
(Jeff Frith, Devils Lake Joint Water Resource Board) "A lot of that depends on how soon they can get started, how long they can operate through the fall, and whether or not there are any shutdowns between that period of time."
Meanwhile, Frith and others impacted by the rising lake watch the forecasts, hoping for an end to heavy rain, and a reduction in the level of the Sheyenne River so pumping can resume, because they'd like to get used to falling levels on Devils Lake, Jim Olson, KX News.
...
Frith says a dike system that once was eight miles around the city of Devils Lake is now 12 miles long - keeping the city that actually sits below the adjacent lake, dry
...
Jeff Frith of the Devils Lake Basin Joint Water Resource Board says committees that regulate the outlet pumps met in Carrington today and decided the pumping would have to wait a while longer.
Officials want the flow of the Sheyenne to be one thousand CFS or lower at Cooperstown before the pumping begins.
But the flow is closer to 13-hundred right now - and heavy rains are forecast this week.
Frith says that means the effort to lower Devils Lake through the outlet pumps is on hold for now.
