Town considers fluoride-free future

February 16, 2012

BOURBON — Water/wastewater department head Mike Shoda came before the Bourbon Town Council Tuesday with the idea to stop adding fluoride to the town’s public water supply. According to Shoda, fluoride in water may not be actually necessary and taking it out could save the town about $2,000 per year. Shoda also mentioned that he had spoken with the water department head in Walkerton — a town which has already ceased the addition of fluoride to their water — about the issue.
“There’s no law that says we need fluoride in the water,” said Shoda.
