Fluoride fight in Bradford

Posted: Updated:
BRADFORD, Vt. -

Fluoride will remain out of the Bradford water supply-- at least for now.

The town's water commission recently stopped adding fluoride to the water supply. Officials say the change was made to save money and because they do not see overwhelming proof that fluoride in the water has a health benefit.

The decision sparked controversy in town. Tuesday night, both local and state officials gathered to discuss it.

"How much is too much fluoride? Nobody can really answer that. We have had several things that are pro, for fluoride and there are a bunch that are against fluoride. Exactly what it will come down to we don't know," said Robert Nutting of the Bradford Water Commission.

For the time being the water commission is sticking by its decision. The topic will be discussed again at a commission meeting Dec. 11. Nutting says ultimately, ratepayers may have the final say on Town Meeting Day.
