April 28, 2009 at 9:19 am I am just not sure this is the solution. It seems extremely expensive; when no one can guarantee it will work. I want the lake to be clean, not only for the public’s use; but also to maintain property values on the lake.
However, this sounds like a very expensive experiment to me. As lakefront owners, we pay “extra” taxes to fund the Devil’s Lake Water District. I am concerned our taxes will go up dramatically in order to pay for installation and ongoing maintenance of this endeavor.
I would like to see other alternatives discussed publicly so we all could have a part in the decision-making process.
April 27, 2009 at 9:08 am I feel with all of these solabees on the lake that it will put the safety of people in jeopardy. The summer brings lots of activity and familys with young people the navigation will be uncertain and dangerous.
I do not want to see anyone get injured.
April 30, 2009 at 2:12 pm The Members of the Devils Lake Water Board need to hear from all property owners that this is an incredibly wrong decision. We got them to listen to us on the ludicrous idea of “lowering the lake level” and now we need to make sure they hear us on this issue too! The Lake that we all enjoy and love will be dangerous for any of us to fish or play on. There has got to be other alternatives!!!!
