Joe Belford watches water flow from a Devils Lake outlet

In this Aug. 24, 2010, photo Joe Belford, 72, a lifelong Devils Lake resident and county commissioner who spends most of his time lobbying for money and overseeing ways to control the flooding, watches water flow from an outlet on the west end of Devils Lake. The North Dakota lake has been called a slow-growing monster: a huge lake that has steadily expanded over the last 20 years, swallowing up thousands of acres, hundreds of buildings and at least two towns in its rising waters.
