My Town Plainfield: Public hearing over sewer system upgrades June 12

PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich.—The public is encouraged to attend a hearing June 12 to weigh in on proposed upgrades to the township’s sewer system.

The $6 million project would include:

  • Constructing approximately 6,000 feet of 12‐inch sanitary sewer and installing new manholes from Ten Mile Road to the Childsdale Avenue area.
  • Removing and replacing six northerly trunk sewer inverted siphons located under the Rogue River with river crossing pipe.
  • Improve flood protection at the Forest Ridge Lift Station.
  • Improve the collection system at the Comstock Park Area Trunk Sewer.

The project would lead to higher operation and maintenance costs for the fiscal year, costing each resident an additional $2.40 per month.
