Water Resource Management Public Forum

Discussion of City's Integrated Water Resource Plan

Franklin Holds Public Forum to Discuss Water Resource Management
City Wants Public Input into Integrated Water Resource Plan

Franklin—The City of Franklin is holding a second public forum July 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the City Hall Boardroom on the Integrated Water Resources Plan (IWRP) currently being developed. The plan will provide the City with a “road map” for making investments to improve water resources with a focus on sustainability and consideration of regional goals and partnerships. The plan includes potable water resources, wastewater treatment, the use of reclaimed water, protection and use of the Harpeth River and storm water management.

“With the droughts we suffered over the summers of 2007 and 2008, and the recent flooding in the region which resulted in a water emergency, these are strong reminders that water is a vital resource,” said Water Management Director Mark Hilty. “I would like to get citizens involved in this process and help take ownership of the water they use each and every day. This is their chance to make a difference and help us make a sustainable water resource plan for Franklin as we grow in the future.”

At the public forum on July 12, citizens will be able to see a brief presentation about the status of the Integrated Water Resources Plan which includes modeling of the various water components and how they affect each other. Attendees will have an opportunity to speak with many of the participants in the process, including City officials, Representatives from the consultant team, and various stakeholders.

The City hopes attendees can provide input and come away with a better understanding of Franklin’s water resources planning efforts.
