The town's water conservation plan is now in effect, restricting outdoor water use to one day a week, said Department of Public Works Director Brutus Cantoreggi.
Residents are allowed to water outdoors only on their trash day through Sept. 1, he said.
The plan saves at least one million gallons of water daily, Cantoreggi said.
"This is unique in this state, because most communities have water bans allowing (outdoor water use) two days a week. We're much stricter," said Cantoreggi.
Franklin implemented the water conservation plan six years ago, and was recognized for it by the state Department of Environmental Protection, Cantoreggi said.
Franklin gets all of its water from the aquifers underground, so without conservation, there is the potential to run low on water, Cantoreggi said.
