“Hot Springs is known worldwide for its water, and Eureka Springs also has a history of being renowned for the healing quality of its water,” Harvey said. “People may be less likely to come visit if they know that our water could be contaminated with a known accumulative toxic poison. We live in an era of a lot of health-conscious people that want to avoid poisonous chemicals in our food and water.”
Carroll-Boone Water District’s attempt to comply safely with the state’s new mandate to fluoridate drinking water systems that serve 5,000 or more people could be affected by the lack of cooperation from fluoride suppliers.
As you know in the last legislative session the state of Arkansas passed a law mandating water fluoridation. With this passage it is even more important that the citizens Arkansas, when this mandate is implemented ,receive the highest quality fluoridation chemical. Arkansas residents have a rare opportunity to hear information on the chemicals used for fluoridating the water and to meet some of our state representatives.
Federal lawsuit filed due to unapproved fluoridation chemical will affect Arkansas. Since the state government has passed a water fluoridation mandate, it will affect even more people.
