Devils Lake Basin Water Tour set for June 19


June 10, 2019

The Devils Lake Basin Joint Water Resource Board and the North Dakota Water Education Foundation are co-hosting a tour of the Devils Lake region on Wednesday, June 19. The tour begins at the Devils Lake Chamber of Commerce/Visitor Center, 208 Hwy. 2 west, Devils Lake at 8:30 a.m.

This year's tour will review the infrastructure that has been developed and constructed since flooding started, including the nearly 12-mile earthen dam that protects the City of Devils Lake, Sullys Hill National Game Preserve, historic Fort Totten State Historic Site, the City of Tolna, Tolna Coulee Control Structure and the East Devils Lake Outlet. The tour will also visit area industries that have “turned lemons into lemonade” with the higher water levels, benefiting from tourism, resorts and anglers to generate business.

The public is invited to attend the tour, which costs $20 per person and includes transportation, informational materials, meals, refreshments and a one-year subscription to the “North Dakota Water” magazine.

For more information or to register go to or contact the North Dakota Water Education Foundation at (701) 223-8332 or [email protected]
