This project is designed to extend the municipal water system and connect homes that have been affected by PFAS contamination.
Earlier this year, residential drinking water wells began to dry up, and due to the PFAS contamination in the area, drilling new wells was not an option. Plainfield Charter Township acted quickly and installed a temporary water main at shallow depths to supply water to houses whose wells had dried up. Over the summer, the Plainfield Water Department has been working with residents in the area to get their houses connected to the temporary water main while plans for a permanent water main could be developed. We are now to the point where construction of the permanent municipal water supply system will be built.
Prein&Newhof will have personnel in the field on behalf of Plainfield Charter Township.
