Does EPA plan to revise the fluoride drinking water standard?

At this time and with the finalization of the new risk assessment, the Agency has not yet made a decision about revising the drinking water standard for fluoride.  The Agency will review the new risk assessment of fluoride along with other information (e.g. analytical methods and treatment feasibility, occurrence and exposure, etc) to determine whether it is appropriate to revise the drinking water standard.
