In a THV update, Conway Corporation says it’ll resume putting fluoride in the water for its Conway customers. But CEO Richard Arnold says the earliest that could happen is November.

Conway Corporation stopped putting fluoride in the water last fall because the highly acidic chemical had damaged pipes, but the utility didn’t tell residents. Arnold says customers will receive an apology.

He says the repairs will cost $200,000, which would come either from the budget or an interdepartmental loan.

Arnold says, “We had focused all our attention on making the necessary repairs to get the full plant back in operation, and in doing so neglected to notify our customers. In hindsight, Conway Corporation should have notified the public earlier. We apologize, and pledge to keep you informed about our progress in resuming fluoridation.”
