UK Against Fluoridation

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Australia - So when will a glass of water be fluoride free?

Mayor Greg Williamson raises a glass following Mackay Regional Council's decision to remove fluoride from the region's water.
IF YOU'VE been wondering when your water will be officially fluoride free, ponder no longer.
Mackay Regional Council has confirmed it will switch off Mackay region's water fluoridation systems on Monday, November 7.
It follows the council voting 6-5 to remove fluoride from the water supply on September 28.
Director of engineering and commercial infrastructure Jason Devitt said the November 7 shut-off date will see dosing equipment at the relevant water treatment sites at Nebo Road, Marian, Sarina and Marwood Bores switched off. 
However, it could take up to a week for remaining fluoride in the water to be flushed from the Mackay's region's water..........

....Fluoride was first added to the Mackay water supply in 2009, after the Queensland Government made it mandatory for any town with a population of more than 1000 people.
It was then added to the Sarina supply in 2010 and in the Marian/Mirani supply in late 2014, after the construction of a new water treatment plant in Marian.
But in 2012, the LNP Government made it optional for councils to fluoridate public water supplies, eventually leading to the council's divisive decision.
