Fluoride in the Public Water Supply
Fluoride in the Public Water Supply

We have naturally occurring fluoride in our groundwater.  Since 1959, the Bonner Springs Utility Department has been adjusting the natural fluoride concentrate in the city's water supply. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has been proven to protect against tooth decay.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) approves the addition of fluoride to public drinking water and has named the fluoridation of water as one of the "Ten Great Public Health Inventions of the 20th Century". Adding or adjusting fluoride can help, especially for those children and/or adults who do not have access to or limited access to oral care.

The Maximum Contaminant Level Goal and the Maximum Contaminant Level set by the Environmental Protection Agency for safe drinking water is 4. Bonner Springs Utility Department adds a slight amount of fluoride to our drinking water.  Our target range is 0.6 - 0.7ppm, the optimal level being 0.7ppm,  well below the Maximum Level. The Bonner Springs Utility Department tests the water daily to ensure that the water you drink is safe.
