At the Sarnia City Council meeting on Monday, Nov. 15, Councillor Andy Bruziewicz asked and received council’s agreement for a motion to determine what “significant capital expenditures,” including training and other costs the city might incur related to fluoridation of the water system.

Bruziewicz said the issue related to an incident involving a spill of fluoride that occurred in 1993. He said he had concerns over how long it might be before potentially expensive upgrades to the system might be and what those costs would entail.

Staff were asked to determine what those costs could be by contacting the Lambton Area Water Supply System, which provides drinking water to the city as well as surrounding communities.
