Lake Delhi resident recounts wall of water

Jul 25, 2010

What once was Lake Delhi in Northeast Iowa today is a muddy creek after floodwater from the Maquoketa River Saturday ate a 30 foot hole in the earthen portion of a dam releasing the water much like pulling the plug on a bathtub. Jeff Conrad has a vacation home on the lake, he tells Iowa Public Radio's Pat Blank that he and his family watched as the surge came and went changing the landscape forever.
