We put this request out last September. Kent Norris our DLWID Chairman had a big shoreline restoration project planned and needed a little help. Not surprisingly the project was delayed by the bureaucratic review. In the meantime, with the change in lake management, Kent has stepped up on all of our behalf and taken on the job of the Lake Manager and we’re grateful. Now he can use your help; any amount of time you have available would be much appreciated. So here’s the scoop.
The project has been carefully planned and reviewed by several State and Federal agencies. Special care has been taken to try to make some of the concepts used in the bank stabilization project portable to other properties. Now that the project is approved and scheduled we are putting out the second call to neighbors who may want to help with this pilot project. In doing so you can engage with others, help Kent, and learn about some important techniques that may help you on your property; best of all you’ll be helping to improve Devils Lake. Help needed includes placement of rock and plants in water and along shoreline to stabilize and re-vegetate lakeshore as well as fence out grass carp.
