Water Conservation Measures Go Into Effect Thursday, May 12, 2022

Franklin Residents ~ Water Conservation Measures Go Into Effect Today, Thursday, May 12, 2022.

Following sporadic rainfall totals during the last several months, which has resulted in below average precipitation numbers in eastern Massachusetts, Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Bethany Card declared a Level 1-Mild Drought in the Southeast and Islands Regions of the Commonwealth.

The declaration of a Level 1 drought has triggered the Town to enact Water Conservation restrictions as required per our Water Management Act permit through MassDEP. Therefore, the following Water Conservation Measures are now in effect.

One day per week outdoor watering. Outdoor watering using sprinklers or automated irrigation systems is restricted to the water user's trash day. If the user does not have Town trash service, the user should water on the same day as the nearest Town trash customer. 

Outdoor watering is prohibited between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
