It is a topic no one wants to discuss, but expects to work every time.

The Plainfield Village Board has awarded a contract to construct the sanitary sewer lining underneath Route 59 between Route 30 and Lockport Street at a cost not to exceed $322,595. The contract was awarded to the lowest of three bidders, which was Performance Pipelining, Inc., in Ottawa. The engineer's estimate for the work was $391,880.

Scott Threewitt, lead engineer for the Village of Plainfield, said the construction will include sanitary clean outs, interior manhole sealing, and other miscellaneous items of work.

"The sanitary sewer mains on Route 59 and Ottawa Street are important components to the village's overall sewer system as they service a large portion of the area east of Route 59 near the downtown area, and it is critical that this sewer main functions correctly," he said.

Threewitt noted that the project is similar in scope to the sanitary sewer improvements completed in the Village Green section of downtown Plainfield in 2018.

Funding for this infrastructure project is included in the current fiscal year project, Threewitt added.
