Franklin needs to walk a fine line between using salt to treat icy and snowy roads. Too much salt will harm our water. The presentation to the Town Council last Wednesday had a slide with the increase in salt from 17.4 ppm (2000) to 59.7 ppm (2012). The amount of salt in the water tripled in 12 years.
Do we have salt on the roads?
