A judge has ruled against the Ozark Mountain Regional Public Water Authority’s argument against fluoridation, but it’s now up to the authority’s board to decide if an appeal is forthcoming.

The authority had appealed the Arkansas Department of Health’s mandate that the authority had to follow the provisions of Arkansas Act 197 of 2011, which requires all water systems with 5,000 or more customers to add fluoride to the system.
