Updated October 6, 2020


Our water supply has finally stabilized and we are removing the water conservation measures effective Tuesday October 6, 2020. 

Thank you all for your participation in this. We narrowly avoided the steep costs of hauling water. The water commission continues to explore locations and costs of drilling a well to provide reliable flows for our future. 

Please continue to address and report all water leaks you may find inside or outside your home as soon as they are found.

Please contact Water Operator, Jeremy Barnum at 324-2580 with questions or concerns.

Thank you,

Franklin Water Commission
