Callaway shows how a small town can overcome a big problem

Callaway is a town of just 200 people, but it had a pretty big problem: a deteriorating 90-year-old water system, plus a 60-year-old "hand-me-down" treatment plant purchased from another town. Its infrastructure wasn't just old, it was unsafe.

It was obvious and imperative both the water system and the treatment plant needed to be significantly updated--but at what cost to the townspeople?

Callaway's leaders set to work coming up with a two-part plan and enough funding to complete the ambitious project in two years.
Many west central Minnesota communities are facing infrastructure crises like Callaway. Read WCI's infrastructure study report.
