The Governor's Executive Order 25 states that the Lake Delhi Recover and Rebuild Task Force is created to assist in the collaboration of citizen and businesses with local, county, state and federal agencies, to develop strategies for both the recovery and rebuilding of the Lake Delhi area, including, most specifically, whether and under what conditions the Lake Delhi dam should be rebuilt.
The Lake Delhi Recover and Rebuild Task Force has established four main subcommittees to compile information on many aspects of the Lake Delhi situation moving forward. These subcommittees include Finance, Economic Development, Legal and Environment. Each subcommittee will provide guidance to the Lake Delhi Task Force.
The subcommittee will likely lead long-term and community planning efforts and identifying best practices with respect to managing the Maquoketa River watershed, reducing the likelihood of future damage by flooding and maintaining or improving water quality.
