Plainfield Township approved a plan to spend $400,000 in filters that could remove the PFAS chemicals from the municipal water supply.

The filters will be installed in the next couple of months.

PFAS chemicals have been found in homes that get their water from Plainfield Township.

In a statement, the Township supervisor said:

We want to emphasize that our water already exceeds all EPA and DEQ standards for quality, but we are not satisfied until we are assured that we are providing the best possible water to our community.
