City of Franklin issues voluntary water conservation notice

As a result of dry weather conditions across Williamson County during the past several weeks, the city of Franklin is asking residents to limit excessive water use throughout the city.

"As you know, we’ve had virtually no rain for 1.5 months, which means the City is relying on its raw water supply to provide treated drinking water to the City’s service area," city officials said in a social media post. "In an effort to conserve water in case the drought conditions continue, we’re asking residents to limit excessive water usage."

The city has issued a voluntary water conservation notice advising residents about ways to reduce water consumption:

  • Refrain from washing cars.

  • Water lawns and plants in the early morning or after sundown to reduce water lost to evaporation.

  • Check for leaks in hoses and faucets.

  • Use water wisely.


The National Weather Service projects weather conditions will likely remain dry for the next week, with some chances for rain on Monday and Tuesday. For more tips on how to conserve water in your home, click here.
