A second seminar to learn about drinking water and fluoride will be held Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Cannon Centre.

Customers of Greer Commission of Public Works and other residents interested in drinking water and fluoridation are invited to attend and make comments and ask questions.

The forums are being held after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) changed its recommended fluoride dose to .7 milligrams per liter this April.

“Fluoride is one of the most important components of dental health ever discovered, and we know that,” Jeff Tuttle, CPW General Manager, said. “However, with HHS making these changes, we thought now is a good time to get input from our customers on the continued fluoridation of our community’s drinking water. Fluoride is prevalent in many products we use and consume daily.”

The final meeting will be held Wednesday, at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 9 at Blue Ridge High School.
