Fort Collins Utilities adds fluoride to its drinking water, based on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (USPHS) and the American Dental Association (ADA).
Fluoridation has been part of the Utilities' treatment process since the 1950s. In 2005, another public vote directed Utilities to fluoridate its water to the levels established by the state Department of Public Health and Environment through City Code.
Utilities has a target amount of 0.90 to 1.05 mg/L, (milligrams of fluoride per liter) and reported an average value of 0.9 mg/L in 2014. Fluoridation is accomplished through the addition of hydrofluorosilicic acid.
Please consult your physician if you are sensitive to fluoride or fluoridation-related substances, or provide city water to an infant younger than six months of age.
