DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Excess foam is limiting the operation of one of the two floodwater outlets on Devils Lake.

KZZY radio reports that the State Water Commission is trying to figure out a fix for the problem.

Construction Engineer Jon Kelsch says lower discharges from the west-end outlet due to the foam issue in turn impact how much excess lake water can be sent through the east-end outlet, due to water quality constraints.

Kelsch says officials are optimistic the problem will be fixed soon.

There’s still about two months to go before the outlets have to be shut down for winter.
