Franklin is located in northwestern Warren County. Most of the city, including the central business district, lies east of the Great Miami River. Clear Creek enters the river from the east near the south (downstream) edge of the city. The river channel through Franklin is very narrow, so it would have been very expensive to construct an improved channel to pass the design discharge. During the design flood, the channel will carry approximately 80 percent of the discharge and the remaining flow will pass around the western edge of the city across low-lying land. This land is called the Franklin Overflow. MCD maintains 3.7 miles of levee and 1.7 miles of river channel in Franklin.
