EPA To Franklin Residents: 'We'll Do Better'

WFYI (Indianapolis, IN)
JUNE 6, 2019

The Environmental Protection Agency is taking steps to improve communication with Franklin residents. People living in Franklin believe that toxic chemicals coming from the old Amphenol industrial site may be causing child cancers in the area. 

Many residents told the EPA’s Office of Inspector General last month that they weren’t informed about the health risks.


The EPA and the city of Franklin plan to replace or line some sewers that allowed toxic TCE to migrate toward homes south of the Amphenol site. Workers will also removed contamination from around the sewers. Officials with the EPA say they hope to start the project in August and have it finished by the end of the year.
