Lake Delhi task force committee to meet Friday

Posted:

MONTICELLO (KWWL) -- The Environmental Subcommittee of the Lake Delhi Task Force will meet at 10 a.m. Friday at the Pizza Ranch in Monticello.

The purpose of the environmental subcommittee is to lead long-term and community planning efforts and identify best practices with respect to managing the Maquoketa River watershed, reducing the likelihood of future damage by flooding and maintaining or improving water quality.

The task force was created by executive order from Gov. Chet Culver following the Lake Delhi Dam Breach that occurred on July 24th. The task force will ultimately make a recommendation by Dec. 1st on strategies for both the recovery and rebuilding of the Lake Delhi area including, most specifically, whether and under what conditions the Lake Delhi dam should be rebuilt.
