In 1992, a large amount of fluoride leaked into the Hooper Bay water system and the water systems in surrounding communities. The incident left nearly 300 people sick.
Protesters outside City Hall say they're hoping to catch Mayor Dan Sullivan or the assembly's attention to hopefully get rid of fluoride in Anchorage's water supply.
