"After last Tuesday’s heavy rain storms, Horace Mann Middle School officials are assessing water damage done to the stage and music department.
“During those heavy rains and flash flooding, the interior courtyard at Horace Mann became flooded with water due to a clogged drain,” Franklin Superintendent Sara Ahern said during the Tuesday School Committee meeting

"During a routine check of the 12 public water wells in Franklin this week, one was flagged as containing a low level of the bacteria E. coli.
The Department of Public Works emphasized that the well has been shut off to the public supply and that it is actively working to fix the issue. Water well No. 2 was taken offline and water to the affected areas has been diverted to other mains for now.
Human or animal wastes can cause E. coli contamination of water supplies. Microbes in the fecal matter can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches or other symptoms and may pose a special health risk for infants, young children, some of the elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems.
In a statement, the town said there is no emergency and no need to boil water before cooking or drinking."
