Holmen Could Decide Soon Whether To Re-start Fluoridation
They've been waiting almost two years for this report...
Holmen village officials could hear next week about what level of fluoride in tap water is officially preferred by the Wisconsin health department. Public works director Dean Olson says the unofficial word is that fluoride levels will be lowered...so a temporary fluoridation shutdown ordered in Holmen could be reversed.
In April of last year, newly-elected board members in Holmen voted to suspend fluoridation, just days after it was started as the result of a 2008 referendum. That vote followed a federal EPA report calling for reduced fluoride in water systems.
