Abstract

A dam was constructed across Deer Creek in the mid 1990s and was intended to form Deer Creek Lake (DCL) located in Sioux Township, Plymouth County, Iowa. The intended purpose of the lake was for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming. After the dam was constructed, the lake did not reach its designed full pool level of 1,252 feet above sea level (asl). Subsequently, several engineering consulting firms and multiple sections of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) have collaborated in an effort to better understand the issue and find an economically viable remedy.
