Water Conservation In Effect

If you look out the window today (or left your house yesterday), you might be surprised that Franklin’s water conservation measures are in effect as of Monday, April 24. 

Even though we’ve had quite a bit of rain recently, it takes a long time and a lot more rain to replenish our wells and groundwater, which are still depleted from last year’s drought. Franklin’s current conservation measures are minimal and easy to follow (see the sign above), and designed to let that groundwater stock bring itself back up to normal levels. If you live in a nearby town, chances are good your town has enacted similar restrictions, so check with your local Town Hall for more information. In Franklin, check out the town’s website for more information. 

You can also help the Earth out by practicing good water habits at home, like turning the faucet off while you brush your teeth, and checking all your pipes and fixtures for leaks. It’s a good idea to do these things even when we’re not under restriction, to help make sure there’s fresh water for everyone!
