Arvadans, brush your teeth extra good. At least until summer.
On Monday, the city announced that it will not be able to add supplemental fluoride to its municipal water supply because a tank storing liquid fluoride at its Ralston Water Treatment Plant is leaking and efforts to fix the tank have been unsuccessful.
The city said a leaking storage tank creates an unsafe environment for workers at the plant.
The fluoridation program is expected to be on hold until approximately mid-2020, the city said.
