Approved Stormwater Management Ordinance 2017-41

      Water pollution can come from many different sources. Untreated stormwater runoff flows into storm drains and eventually into our local rivers and streams. To protect its citizens from this pollution, Franklin has developed a program that seeks to manage stormwater before it enters the Harpeth River and its tributaries Stormwater management is required by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Water Act of 1972. Franklin has a Phase II Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit , which allows Franklin to discharge stormwater from its drainage system into nearby rivers and streams. The permit requires six minimum program areas, shown above.
