Lake Delhi stabilization projects nearly complete

Posted:

DELHI (KWWL) -- Projects designed to stabilize the damaged Lake Delhi dam area are nearly complete.

Since the dam was breached in July, the silt has gradually been sent downstream by the river current.

Officials with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources says one project is designed to remove silt and add rock to the lake bed.  Another project shored up the remaining portion of the dam with rock, creating a stilling pond to allow silt to settle out of the flowing water.
