Victoria’s chief health officer, Dr John Carnie, says information about fluoridation has been sent to residents.

He says it has also been strongly supported by health and medical groups in the region.

He says it is now up to North-East Water to introduce fluoride to the water in coming months.

“They have to be able to get someone to be able to build a plant and then obviously test the supply system and then start to put fluoride into the water, so it can be … 12 months or more from the time we give them the direction to when they are actually able to put fluoride into the water, so it is really the engineering works that are required now,” Dr Carnie said.
