Lake Delhi residents say they'll rebuild without federal help

Posted:

People living on Lake Delhi say they can rebuild a dam without federal funding.

The estimated cost of the project is $10-12 million. Lake Delhi residents say fundraising efforts, state aid and aid from Delaware County would cover the price tag.

Initial estimates said rebuilding could cost as much as $24 million.

A July 2010 flood caused the dam to collapse, draining the lake and flooding areas downstream.
