On November 1, 2011, Modern Hydro filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), to study the feasibility of the proposed Delhi Milldam Water Power Project No. 14311 to be located at the existing Delhi Dam, on the south fork of the Maquoketa River, near the township of Delhi, in Delaware County, Iowa. The Delhi Dam is owned by the Lake Delhi Recreation Association Board. There are no federal lands associated with the project.

Morgan Smith turbines with a combined generating capacity of 1,500 kilowatts; (5) an existing substation connected to an existing 12.5-kilovolt distribution line; and (6) appurtenant facilities. The project would have an estimated annual generation of 2,960,000 kilowatt-hours.
