BETHEL – Residents voted Tuesday to authorize the Bethel Water District to continue adding fluoride to the town’s water supply.
The town has added fluoride since 1970.
Bethel business owner Sarah Lane, who is not a resident of the town, asked selectmen to call a town vote on whether to stop using fluoride. She said there is evidence fluoridation is linked to brain damage.
The Bethel Water District did not take a position on the issue. It costs $2,600 a year to add fluoride.
