Glass of water

The Plainfield Township Water Department has released its latest water quality report as part of its continued commitment to provide information to customers on its high-quality drinking water.

The 2021 Annual Water Quality Report includes facts about the Township’s water supply, tests results, definitions and details on Plainfield’s water quality and treatment process.

The Township’s municipal drinking water is monitored for hundreds of substances – including PFAS – on a strict sampling schedule and must meet specific health standards. The report uses data gathered by the Water Department from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2021, and once again shows the Township continues to provide safe drinking water for its customers.

The Township’s use of granular activated carbon, or GAC, filters for its entire water system continues to be highly effective in eliminating PFAS, bacteria, pathogens and other undesirable elements from drinking water. This is done through the use of activated carbon material that absorbs contaminants from the water as they filter through. The Water Plant has the ability to treat up to 16 million gallons of water per day using GAC filtration.

Earlier this year, the Water Department was recognized for having the best-tasting municipal water in the state by the Michigan Section of the American Water Works Association and Michigan Rural Water Association.
