Covering more than 211,300 acres (261 square miles), Devils Lake is the largest natural body of water in North Dakota. According to “The Official Web Site for the City of Devils Lake,” the lake has earned the reputation of being the Perch Capital of the World, with anglers catching 2-pounders on a regular basis. There are other sports fish in the lake that has become a destination for hundreds of thousands of migrating waterfowl in the fall and thirsty whitetail deer, making Devils Lake a popular hunting as well as fishing destination.
During the past 20 years, the water level in the lake has risen about 20-feet – creating a flood threat to the city of Devils Lake and its 7,100 residents who live in this natural, recreational paradise.
“We worked in the Devils Lake basin building a levee to protect the city from the lake,” states Britton Lawson, grade foreman/ GPS tech for Park Construction, Fridley, Minn. “Our role
was to raise the existing levee by 10 feet and improve the pump station that collects the city’s storm water that is funneled back into the lake.”
Increasing the levee’s height also required that the levee be widened to withstand the increased water pressure.
