Ground Broken for New Lake Delhi Dam Project

DELHI, Iowa - Lake Delhi redevelopment is finally moving forward nearly four years after heavy rain washed away the dam.

Workers broke ground Thursday after years of government hurdles and finding funding for the project.

It's a day lake residents have waited for literally for years, ever since the high water washed away both the impoundment that held in the water and the lake itself.

With most ground breakings, participants dig away with a few shovels and then no real construction might take place for weeks. But not with Lake Delhi.

Contractors doing the first phase of the reconstruction of the dam and gates have already moved in equipment.

They were doing work just minutes after the ceremony finished.

Dam supporters say they will put the second half of the work out for bids as early as May or June. That's the portion that will construct a new spillway to begin holding back the water to make a lake.

It's $16 million worth of work to restore what Mother Nature tore apart in June of 2010.

The hope is a recreational lake will appear sometime in the summer of 2015.
