Franklin's Sewer System: Then and Now

Construction of Franklin's sewer system in 1914-1915.  The Pond Street Sewer Beds were in service from 1915 through the early 1970s, when the Charles River Pollution Control District (CRPCD) was formed.  The CRPCD in Medway now treats all of Franklin's sewage.  The Sewer Beds are no longer in use, but all of the sewer lines shown in these pictures are still in use today!
