Current Status/Progress Report
On February 14, 2022, the Plainfield Charter Township Board of Trustees awarded the water main construction contract to Schippers Excavating Inc. of West Olive, MI. This project is designed to extend the municipal water system and connect homes that have been affected by PFAS contamination.
Prior to the water main being installed, trees within the public road rights-of-way and easements will be cleared as necessary. Tree clearing is scheduled to begin the week of April 4. Trees will be marked for removal later this week. Schippers has indicated they intend to start water main construction the week of April 18, pending water main material delivery. The Schippers contract will construct the water main along the road and short water service stubs toward each house. You will receive more information regarding how to connect your water service from the stub into your house at a later date.
Water main will be installed along the west side of Herrington Avenue and the north side of 10 Mile Road and Brent Road. There will be short periods of time when water main is being installed in front of your houses and your driveway will be inaccessible. Schippers will work to restore driveways as soon as possible during the day and will ensure that all driveways are accessible by the end of the workday. Caution is advised while driving through the project area. For the safety of all residents and construction crews, we ask that residents stay out of the construction area at all times and be aware of construction equipment moving throughout the project area.
What to Expect
