On Thursday, the Court ordered the Water Works Board of the City of Arab to immediately resume the addition of fluoride to the water supply at the optimal level.

The level recommended by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is currently 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water.

They have been ordered to follow the same practices that were followed by the board for the past 43 years prior to August 2015.

The City of Arab will post bond of $50,000, which the Court find to be sufficient security. They filed a motion for the preliminary injunction seeking to have fluoride added back to the water supply on February 11.

A hearing was held on March 8 and 9.
