My water supply

Fluoride

Fluoride occurs naturally in water. It's useful for babies and children who have growing teeth and helps reduce tooth decay and cavities.

All of our supplies contain either natural fluoride or an enhanced fluoride concentration at the regulatory value of 1.0mg/l.

The enhanced levels of fluoride are added to our water at the request of Public Health England in accordance with the Water (Fluoridation) Act 1985, and following extensive consultation with local health authorities and our customers.

The concentration of fluoride in the water is independently audited every month by Public Health England.
