Water Conservation for all in Franklin!


Hello, this is Brutus Cantoreggi

Franklin's drinking water supply system is currently struggling to meet our water demands. 

This is due to a number of reasons, lack of snow pack from last winter, the recent dry period and most significantly, residents and businesses are not following the one-day-per-week water conservation measures.   Last weekend we had extremely high water demand during days that should have had no outdoor watering. 

If this demand continues at the current rate, the safe supply of clean drinking water and fire protection throughout the Town will be jeopardized.  The Town will be forced to impose a full outdoor watering ban.   Meaning no outdoor water use whatsoever on any day for whatever reason.

In order to avoid those extreme measures, we urge all residents and businesses to comply with the one-day-per-week watering schedule. 

Starting immediately, Public Works and Franklin Police will begin patrolling and enforcing the Town's water conservation plan.  Violators are subject to fines up to $200. 

We are all in this together; please remind your friends and neighbors about water conservation.

For additional information or assistance, please contact the DPW Office at 508-520-4910 or visit the Town of Franklin website.
