2021 Water Quality Report
Frenchtown Lead and Copper Excavation
The Water Department has been out spot checking water services to verify records for our Lead and Copper compliance. The homes are randomly generated to cover the whole Township. We will be digging at the curb box located at the property line. We will verify the material and fill the hole created with sand temporarily. We will return to fill the hole with Top Soil and hydroseed the damage area. We are hoping to use the hydro excavator to create as little damage to the lawn as possible. Thank you for you cooperation during this time.

Water Treatment Plant
The Frenchtown Water Plant is a state of the art 8.0 Million Gallon Per Day (MGD) water treatment plant. The water plant consists of two different types of treatment technologies. The existing 4.0 MGD plant was put into operation in 1994 and is a conventional Claricone system, consisting of 2 Claricones and 4 Rapid Sand Filters. To meet the growing demand of water in the Township a 6.0 MGD Membrane Filter Treatment Plant was built. The plant was completed in 2006 and has some of the newest technology in the water treatment field. The plant has three 2 MGD Membrane filters, and includes a full SCADA system. With the addition of a new Ozone System and the membrane filter technology, we feel we are putting out some of highest quality of water in the state of Michigan.
The water treatment plants main goal is to provide safe, reliable, and aesthetically pleasing drinking water to the Township. We are proud that since the plant was put on line in 1994, we have never been in violation of federal or state drinking water standards.
