DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are headed to Devils Lake to inspect the city’s levee.

City engineer Mike Grafsgaard tells KZZY radio that the inspection is one of the last steps before the city takes over maintenance of the embankment.

The $170 million levee is more than 12 miles long and has been raised several times in recent years. The federal government paid for 75 percent of the project.

Grafsgaard says the meeting with the corps will help ensure that all construction issues have been addressed.
