Water company replaces aging lines in Franklin

Indiana American Water has finished a project to replace aging water mains throughout Franklin.

The company spent $2.2 million on the work and replaced two miles of lines in 13 projects, according to a news release from the company, which is a subsidiary of American Water.

The work was done to improve the reliability and quality of water service to customers and improve water availability for fire protection.

“This investment in our water system replaces aging pipe that, in many cases, has outlived its usefulness, ensuring that our customers continue to receive quality, reliable water service for many years to come,” Indiana American Water President Deboray Dewey said in the news release.

A portion of customers’ payments is put toward replacing aging infrastructure. The company provides water to multiple Johnson County communities.
