Pinellas County Approves Water Fluoridation

Last year, Pinellas County Commissioners voted to remove fluoride from the county's drinking water. Tuesday, commissioners voted to put it back in.

Pinellas County Approves Water Fluoridation

Thanks to Pinellas County Communications for passing along this information.

 

On Nov. 27, 2012, the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners approved the addition of fluoride to the Pinellas County water system.

The level of fluoride in the drinking water will be adjusted to 0.7 parts per million (PPM). This water fluoridation program will provide a level recommended for optimal dental health which can significantly reduce the occurrences of tooth decay.

Fluoride’s ability to inhibit or even reverse the onset and development of dental caries is well documented by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the American Dental Association (ADA).
