Current Status/Progress Report
On February 13, 2023, the Plainfield Charter Township Board of Trustees awarded the water main construction contract to Montgomery Excavating LLC. of Ionia, MI. This project is designed to support the recent municipal water system extensions west of US-131 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 will be cleared as necessary. Tree clearing is tentatively scheduled for the last week of March. Montgomery will start water main construction the first week of April. The Montgomery 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 Pine Island Drive and Pine Island Court. There will be short periods of time when water main is being installed in front of your house and your driveway will be inaccessible. Montgomery 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. Two-way traffic will be maintained on Pine Island Drive by utilizing a traffic shift around the immediate construction zone. Alternate routes are advised, and delays should be expected. 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 and be aware of construction equipment moving throughout the project area.
Please contact any project representative if you have questions or concerns.

- Tree clearing to begin end of the month.
