Thu, 28 Aug 2014 15:57:12 GMT — Officials say they have more renovations planned for a 137-acre lake in southern Iowa. The state Department of Natural Resources says Lake Miami, north of Albia, has been renovated and restocked with fish since a project began in October. A barrier to prevent carp from entering the lake was added in May. Mark Flammang, a fisheries biologist for the department, says additional work will include improving 10,000 feet of shoreline and adding fishing jetties, among other things. The DNR says more than $1 million has been invested in the project through grant funding.
