PLAINFIELD, IL, June 2, 2008 -- The Village of Plainfield, Illinois, recently broke ground on the Wastewater Treatment Facilities Improvements Phase II project which, when completed, will increase wastewater treatment capacity from 4.3 million gallons per day to 7.5 million gallons per day. As one of the fastest growing communities in the State of Illinois, the improvements are needed to accommodate residential, commercial and industrial growth.

One of several major infrastructure improvement projects undertaken in 2008 by the Village, this $18 million dollar project includes improvements to the Village's existing North Treatment Plant and the abandonment of the South Treatment Plant. The abandonment will open up desirable property along the DuPage River which Village officials will incorporate into the planned Northwest Riverwalk Project.

Designed by Baxter & Woodman Inc., Consulting Engineers and constructed by Allan Mack & Sons Inc., the Wastewater Facilities Phase II Improvement project is expected to be completed by January, 2010.

Baxter & Woodman Inc. is an employee-owned Engineering News-Record Top 500 Design Firm which provides planning, design, construction and technology services for water, wastewater, stormwater and transportation facilities for municipalities, counties and state agencies.
