Amherst County, Virginia to Continue Water Fluoridation

Posted & filed under Communities Supporting Fluoride.

The Amherst County Service Authority decided on April 1, 2014 to resume water fluoridation, reversing a decision to temporarily stop fluoridating the water in Amherst County due to equipment relocation three years ago. County officials received a letter in October 2013 from the Virginia Department of Health encouraging them to resume water fluoridation, which prompted them to reexamine why the practice that was only to be interrupted for four- to six-weeks had not yet been reinstated.
