Location: United States, Maryland

The Agenda for the Town Meeting meeting for April 24 includes this recommendation:

Page 20: “Staff would recommend the Town Board give serious consideration to the substantial capital cost for providing fluoride to resident’s ($90,000), which is only a benefit to a specific segment of the population, when fluoride is available through many other sources. If the Town Board decides to move forward with installation of fluoride systems at these two facilities [Brookridge WTP and Well #15], $30,000 of additional funding will need to be approved.”

The Water Fluoridation Manual from AWWA and several other Water Treatment Professional’s support our findings.” Photos on Page 27.
