DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - The Army Corps of Engineers is closing its field office in the city of Devils Lake at the end of the month.

The agency says it is wrapping up a flood mitigation project and the office is no longer needed to support construction. The corps’ St. Paul district will continue supporting the region from its Western Area Office in Fargo.

The Devils Lake region has been plagued by two decades of wet weather and flooding. The corps established the field office in 1996 to oversee more than $200 million in flood mitigation projects. At the height of construction, more than 25 corps employees worked out of the office.
