Water Utility Authority decides against fluoride in water

News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)   There will not be fluoride in your drinking water.

The Water Utility Authority met to decide if the fluoride treatment should resume. It stopped using fluoride back in 2011, waiting for the newly issued federal regulation levels which are now in place.

The board voted against putting fluoride in the water. It was voted four to two against the proposed expense.

It would have cost $250,000 to add the equipment needed to the San Juan-Chama drinking water plant.

The board will also discuss an additional $8 million for capital projects without a rate increase and using $26 million for upgrades at the Southside Water Reclamation Plant.
