null City seeks input on fluoridating municipal drinking water
February 3, 2020 -
The City is inviting input from residents to help Council consider whether or not to add fluoride to the water. Kingston’s water does not have fluoride added to it by the municipality. Exploring the feasibility of fluoridating the municipal water supply is one of Council’s strategic priorities.
Examining the feasibility of fluoridating drinking water is an initiative that falls under Council’s priority to “Foster healthy citizens and vibrant spaces.”
“Please note that the municipality is neither for, nor against, fluoridation at this point. We are just collecting information for Council’s consideration,” says Lanie Hurdle, the City’s Chief Administrative Officer.
Learn more about fluoride and water fluoridation by visiting the City’s Fluoride and Water Fluoridation website page.
