Natick Fluoride Status February 21, 2023

The Town of Natick Water & Sewer Division is scheduled to resume the addition of fluoride to the Natick drinking water system on March 1, 2023.  The Division previously suspended the addition of fluoride in January of 2022 due to the unavailability of fluoride supply during a national supply chain shortage.

The Division maintains a target fluoride level of 0.7 ppm, as recommended by the CDC and Mass Dept of Public Health to reduce tooth decay.  The Division has added fluoride for over 25 years, and continuously monitors the levels.
