The Central Darling Shire Council is calling for fluoride to be added to Wilcannia’s water supply.
The Fluoridation of Public Water Supplies Advisory Committee has urged the council to install a fluoridation system.
But the council’s general manager, Tim Hazell, says the council needs the approval of the New South Wales Department of Health before it can proceed.
“It’s been another one of those ongoing processes that’s been looked at for a number of years,” he said.
“We’ve finally received advice that the water supply should be fluoridated so we’re going to seek approval for the funding of putting that particular process in place and have it happen.”
