Vote to add fluoride to metro’s drinking water deferred

News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A decision on a proposed plan that would once again add more fluoride to drinking water in Albuquerque will have to wait another month.

Wednesday night the Water Authority’s Governing Board voted 4-3 to defer a vote until September 20.

Fluoride operations were halted in 2011.

The issue was brought up again due to many board members believing it would benefit the public’s health.
