Important Information

This project is designed to extend the municipal water system and connect homes that have been affected by PFAS contamination.

You might ask: Why is Plainfield Township coordinating the construction project when I live in Algoma Township? The answer is that Algoma Township does not have a municipal water system, and Plainfield Township is extending its water system further into Algoma Township to supply Algoma residents affected by PFAS contamination. This project is a continuation of last year’s water main construction in the Wellington Ridge neighborhood.
