Lewis & Clark capital call rejected

The Lewis & Clark Regional Water System’s board of directors voted Oct. 24 to reject the capital call, which would have required LCRWS members to put more money into the project to keep it moving forward.

Five of 20 members — Luverne, Worthington, Lincoln Pipestone Rural Water System, Lennox and Beresford — voted in favor of the capital call. Lennox Council instructed their representative to vote for the capital call, citing that the best thing for LCRWS members would be to get all members on the system as soon as possible.
