ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Water Utility Authority is hoping to hear from the public regarding adding fluoride to the city’s water.
At a board meeting that is set for Wednesday, officials are aiming to provide the community with data of fluoride levels, estimated costs, and a timeline on when it would be implemented if approved.
The Water Authority stopped adding supplemental fluoride in 2011 after federal agencies couldn’t agree on its safety.
A new policy has since been adopted encouraging its addition to the water.
Officials are expected to vote on the matter at an August 23 meeting.
Wednesday’s meeting starts at 5 p.m. in the City Government Center at Civic Plaza.
