Request for Comment on Proposed Fluoridation Guidance

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a proposed operational control range around optimal fluoride concentration in community water systems that adjust fluoride, and monthly adherence to that range.

The proposed operational control range is 0.6 mg/L to 1.0 mg/L. CDC bases this guidance on the following considerations: (1) Concentration of fluoride in water shown to prevent tooth decay and (2) Ability of water systems to control variation in fluoride concentration.
