From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"While repairs have begun at the town’s main water treatment plant in the aftermath of a tank fire earlier this month, it is not known when work will be completed - nor, consequently, how much longer the town will remain on a full water ban.

“The tank is currently being repaired and lined and we are sourcing replacements for the many pieces of equipment that are attached to the tank,” he indicated in an update on the work posted Monday afternoon to the DPW’s Facebook page. “All this specialized work takes time to complete. Additionally, the many repair/replacement parts that are needed are very specialized and cannot just be bought off the shelf at any hardware store.”
