Private Property Infiltration/Inflow Reduction Program
The City of Franklin is a full-service community, providing public sewer, water, and stormwater conveyance systems to its residents. To make sure we continue to provide the level of urban services, the City monitors its systems on a regular basis to address potential issues before they become problems in an effort to save money, time, and resources. To that end, the City is working with MMSD on a Private Property Infiltration and Inflow (PPII) Reduction Program. This program involves inspection of private property to better understand factors that contribute to sewer backups in the City and are provided as a service by the City at no direct cost to the property owner. See PPII Reduction Program for more details and how to participate in the program.
