A committee, assessing whether fluoride should be introduced into Carnarvon’s water supply is planning a telephone survey to help gauge the community’s position on the proposal.

At the end of last year, the Health Department announced plans to fluoridate Carnarvon’s water.

Residents opposing the plan presented the Minister for Health with more than 800 letters rejecting it.

However, the Fluoridation of Public Water Supplies Advisory Committee recently said it would delay making its recommendations to the Minister until it conducted further consultation.

Last week, the committee decided to carry out an independent phone survey early next year.
