KANSAS FLUORIDE DATA FOR EACH WATER SYSTEM
• 2020: Levels of Fluoride in the State’s Drinking Water and Fluoridation Status: 53 Public Water Systems with fluoride levels over 0.71 ppm.
For a quick overview, Michael Dolan, in his November 2021 Fluoridation Review, listed these cities and towns in Kansas:
The following list, obtained from the Fluoride in Kansas website, a joint project of the State of Kansas, the Kansas Dental Association and Oral Health Kansas consists of towns with at least 0.7 mg/L fluoride, ie. “fluoridated”, and towns with less than 0.7 mg/L fluoride, ie. “non-fluoridated.” This designation does not distinguish between towns that are fluoridated and those that have naturally occurring fluoride. We hope to further distinguish these in the coming months.

Kansas’ FLUORIDATION LAW:
- Kansas Statute Annexed § 19-3521a, gives local communities the authority to fluoridated the public water supply.

|Information from CDC’s Fluoridation Census published in 1993.|
FLUORIDE POLLUTION SOURCES IN KANSAS:
In 2008, Kansas ranked #31 out of 48 states for Hydrogen Fluoride releases (341,332 pounds) into the environment. The following data comes from EPA’s Toxic Release Inventory (TRI). “Total releases” includes both water and air pollution. It’s important to note, however, that not all industries or sources that release fluoride into the environment are included in the TRI.
