During the summer of 2007, the city of Franklin, Tennessee and its surroundings were experiencing a severe drought. Due to the high heat and low flows in the Harpeth River, Franklin struggled to meet water supply demands in the area. The city’s raw water reservoir, which can hold 85 million gallons, was completely dry for several months. As a result, the 2.0 MGD Franklin water treatment plant was inoperable for periods of time. Water is normally pumped from the Harpeth River into the raw water reservoir, where it is later treated before consumption.
