The Northfield Township Wastewater Treatment plant is located in Green Oak Township at 11500 Lemen Road, adjacent to the Maxey school which it was orginally built to serve.  The photograph below was extracted from this Google satellite view.

Here is a close-up of the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) map of regional Wastewater Treatment plants, (downloadable as a PDF here).  It shows our plant's service area as planned through the year 2025.  No sign of wholesale expansion into Agricultural districts.  Why is that?  Because five acre parcels can support septic systems, handling their own waste.  Gotta love self-reliance.
