Pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Ch. 131, s.40 (The Wetlands Protection Act) Franklin Conservation Commission will hold a Hybrid Public Hearing on Thursday, July 21, 2022 at 7:02 PM on a Notice of Intent filed by Amy Anderson of Arcadis on behalf of Franklin Department of Public Works for the rehabilitation, replacement, and general improvements to the interceptor, as well as a new pump station on the property at 275 Beaver Street. The work will impact the Riverfront Area, Bordering Vegetated Wetlands, the 100-foot Bordering Vegetated Wetlands Buffer and the 200-foot Riverfront Area Buffer.
