The Cassowary Coast Regional Council has decided not to fluoridate the water supply in the far north Queensland city of Innisfail.

A recent phone poll of 300 residents found 64 per cent opposed fluoridation.

Councillors voted six to one against fluoride at a meeting today.

That is despite $700,000 of state funding already being spent on new infrastructure to fluoridate the water supply.
