Franklin, NH – It's a clean water success story that began in the 1970s and continues today in Lake Country. A $6 million improvement marks the completion of the Winnipesaukee Basin's upgraded wastewater treatment plant in Franklin. It's a state-run facility that handles the waste from ten communities.

State Representative Franklin Tilton was among the dignitaries on hand at this week's ribbon-cutting ceremony. He gave credit to the team of state employees who faced quite a challenge in keeping the plant running, handling 11.5 million gallons of sewage a day during the 16-month construction period.

"They're just well trained and motivated. They know their business and they're enthused about it, so they do it well."

Dick Flanders, director of the Winnipesaukee River Basin Program, also had praise for the workers, who are members of the State Employees' Association.

"We have shown that public employees can do a job as good as, if not better than, folk in the private sector. And hey, we're proud of that!"

Even before the renovations, the state-owned facility was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its outstanding work. The renovation is expected to keep the plant humming for another 30 years.
