Frequent Questions

Doesn't fluoride occur naturally in water? What if my water system has naturally-occurring fluoride above 4.0 mg/L?

Fluoride can occur in drinking water naturally as a result of the geological composition of soils and bedrock.  Community water systems are required to ensure that levels of fluoride in their drinking water are less than 4.0 mg/L in order to be in compliance with EPA drinking water regulations.  If your water system has naturally-occurring fluoride above this level, the EPA requires systems to take action to reduce it.  If you want the most up-to-date information about the current fluoride level in your water, contact your local water supplier directly.
