Excepts from article. The Eureka Springs City Council formally adopted Resolution 600 on Monday night that opposes the fluoridation of the city’s water supply.
After being voted down twice by residents of the city, the law requiring fluoridation that was passed by the Arkansas Legislature last year could still go into effect in the near future despite vehement local opposition.
The law mandates that any city that serves more than 5,000 residents is required to add fluoride to its drinking water. Currently, Eureka Springs purchases 100 percent of its water from the Carroll Boone Water District, which is now preparing to institute the changes. A recap of CBWD’s most recent public meeting on fluoridation can be found here.
The council hopes to send Resolution 600 to influential legislators who hopefully can work to repeal the law; a decision on exactly where to send it will be discussed at their next regular meeting on Monday, June 25.
