SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane is now one step closer toward potentially adding fluoride to the city’s drinking water.

There’s a consensus amongst health experts that fluoridated water benefits dental health, especially that of children, but Spokane voters have rejected fluoridation proposals three times in the past.

In the fall of 2020, Spokane City Council moved forward on its own with the beginnings of a fluoridation plan. They voted to accept a $4 million grant from the Arcora Foundation, the non-profit arm of Delta Dental, to pay for the installation.
