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.

All water services are available for connection. Homeowners must schedule the work directly with the contactor they selected and have their water service installed within sixty (60) days of when it became available. Please contact Jeremy Kamp (contact info below) if you have any questions.
