Speaking of Plainfield (IL) Landscape…
Like its namesake, Plainfield’s topography is basically flat. Thousands of years ago, land in greater Plainfield used to be part of the bed of proglacial Lake Wauponsee. The lake didn’t hold up long, however, and it eventually drained into the Illinois River valley, leaving a very flat landscape. Much of downtown Plainfield has an above–sea level elevation of around 600–625 feet, with some areas in the western and northwestern parts of the village’s outskirts exceeding 700 feet. This rise in elevation was created by terminal moraines formed during the Wisconsin Episode of the last ice age’s last glacial period that has been recorded. (
