Water line leak in Franklin

The City of Franklin water department closed off part of the road around the intersection of 13th and Elk streets Monday night to repair a water leak that had occurred in an 8-inch water line under the intersection. At least two holes had to be jackhammered into the intersection as of 7:30 p.m. Water department employee Scott Stoltenberg said another leak also occurred down the road by the 13th Street McDonald’s.
