    Well, look at that. I have really never heard of a lake without some feeding or draining rivers or something. I'd say get the pumps out, personally.

    Don't they have sewers for these kind of things? but yeah that's kind of scary to be living by a lake that swallows land and buildings.

    I thought Florida was the only State that has sinkholes.

    I live about 200 miles or so away from Devil's lake and they have been trying to get something done for years with no luck, Its a sad sad thing,m as the article says if an outlet isn't built soon ,it will create it own with potentially disastrous results, especially if the over flow occurs during the flood season on the Red river of the north.

    Seriously, they should just connect it with the closet body of water. Or connect a bunch of pumps and drain it.

    What you have there is probably a failure of town planning. Local authorities should discourage people from settling and building on flood plains. If they'd had the foresight and the resolve, maybe they wouldn't find themselves in the position of having to buy out people who've lost property to the lake.

    But it is an unfortunate situation they find themselves in.

    It's funny, you hear so much about lakes drying up in other parts of the world with climate change and so forth. I was listening to something about this just the other night. So the rains stop falling and you get desertification, hydrological projects drain what water was left in the land. So I was thinking, the flip side of that is if it stops raining in one place, presumably it ends up raining more elsewhere. I suppose the obvious solution then is to look into ways of moving the water from where it's not wanted to where it's desperately needed. Which of course may not be practical at all.

    Thats the problem the nearest body of water is the Sheyenne river that feeds into the Red River of the north and because of that there is so much fighting about the subject not a damn thing gets done. I willnot be surprised if the Lake settles it for its self.

    that sucks, but if I remember correctly there was a special on like Discovery channel that mentions the lake.

    Also, the title is so wrong I thought it was going to be some perverted schnit. My mind can't wipe out the image it created now, thanks.

    Maybe they need to look into the pumps at Salt Lake..they are idle, maybe just maybe they could be moved to Devil's Lake, save the tax papers a little money. Just my :2c:

    They could , but then they still have to agree on where to pump the water, everyone agrees the lake needs an outlet but no one can agree on where the water should go.
