Lake Delhi Dam would get $5 million if proposal passes

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The rebuilding of the Lake Delhi Dam has received some backing from the Iowa House and Senate.

The Lake Delhi community has been trying rebuild since the 2010 disaster, in which the old road under the dam gave way and the dam failed.

Friday Representative Lee Hein (R- Monticello) tells us that there has been a tentative compromise agreement, in which, lawmakers would pay $2.5 million for the 2013 fiscal year and an additional $2.5 million for the 2014 fiscal year.

Hein expects the house to approve the funding bill sometime next week.
