Franklin Septic-to-Sewer Conversion

Franklin Septic-to-Sewer Conversion Project


Welcome to the Franklin Septic-to-Sewer Conversion Project webpage. Here you will find project information, updates, resources, and more.

For decades, Franklin property owners have relied on septic systems to dispose of sewage. These systems pose a number of environmental challenges, and some systems may no longer be in compliance with Sacramento County Code and State requirements.

In 2018, SacSewer identified a grant program through the State of California that could potentially pay for the construction and connection costs to convert Franklin’s residential properties to sewer service. SacSewer held two community meetings, and property owners with septic systems were presented with a potential opportunity to convert from septic to public sewer service.

During the initial community outreach, many homeowners expressed interest in converting from septic to sewer service. Based on that support, SacSewer proceeded with the application to secure the State Grant.

Now, after a complex and lengthy grant application process, the State has indicated grant funding could soon be awarded to design and construct the Franklin septic-to-sewer conversion project.
