FEMA asked to fund rebuilding of Lake Delhi dam

Posted:

LAKE DELHI (KWWL) -- State officials are once again asking FEMA to provide money to replace the Lake Delhi Dam.  State officials sent the letter Oct. 28 telling FEMA it was wrong in its previous refusal to provide that money after the dam collapsed after flooding on the Maquoketa River in July.  FEMA said then the dam wasn't eligible because it's owned by a private group.  The state counters a recreation association is a public entity.  Repairs are expected to cost $6 million.
