Franklin has multiple water providers: South Brunswick Water And Sewer and Franklin Public Works. This page provides information about Franklin Public Works.

Borough of Franklin Water, a public community water system under the Water and Sewer Division under the Department of Public Works, provides water to about 5,500 residents in Franklin Boro, New Jersey. Founded in 1913, the Borough of Franklin Water System currently obtains its supply from groundwater sources, primarily wells that drill into the aquifer underneath the area. Furthermore, Franklin Water owns three of the groundwater wells, which are strategically situated in the southern half of the Borough and drill into the Jacksonburg Limestone and Kittatinny Aquifer Systems. The other two wells are owned by the Borough of Ogdensburg and drill into the Franklin Limestone Aquifer some 300 feet underneath, which is then purchased by Franklin Water.
