DELHI, Iowa (AP) - Officials say the water in Lake Delhi has returned to the level it was before the dam broke in July 2010.

The refilling began nearly a year ago. The lake on the Maquoketa (muh-KOH’-kih-tuh) River emptied when heavy rains caused the previous dam to fail.

Property owners formed a taxing district shortly after the storms, and voters approved a $6 million bond measure for the new dam and restoration. Other money came from the state, Delaware County and private donations.
