Doctors, dentists fight to keep flouride in Oliver Springs water

Doctors, dentists fight to keep flouride in Oliver Springs water

Some Oliver Springs leaders want flouride out of the public water supply, but several doctors and dentists are fighting to keep it in.

Thursday, the town held a public meeting about the floride levels.

Over the summer, the town's water board voted to remove flouride altogether from the water system. After that vote, leaders learned they were required under state law to give residents a 30-day notice and hold a public forum, which led to Thursday's meeting.
