Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant flushing began on Monday, April 5, 2021! This program is conducted annually to improve Franklin’s water quality and fire flows. Some hydrants will be flushed in the evening hours on weekdays and in the morning on weekends, while others will be completed during the day.  Hydrant flushing will continue depending on water availability and system pressures. 

Residents may experience temporary water loss or discolored water while hydrants are being flushed in their area. Even though the water may be discolored, it is still safe for human consumption.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and we apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. Please check this page daily, to see which area we will be working in. 

Projected plan moving forward with flushing is to tackle these areas in the following order: Chestnut St., Jordan Rd., King St., Washington St., Grove St., Pond St., Beech St., Maple St., Partridge St., Lincoln St., Pleasant St. This simply is a projected order, subject to change based on water flow conditions. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the DPW office at 508-553-5500.
