FLUORIDATION IS COMING SOON
The First 5 Commission awarded the Sacramento County Water Agency with an $11 million grant to fluoridate drinking water supplies. Community water fluoridation is the safest, most effective and most cost-efficient way to promote strong oral health in children. It has been used by tens of millions of people across the nation and world for more than 60 years to strengthening teeth and bones.
Construction to install fluoridation equipment is underway at 32 locations throughout the Water Agency’s service area. Initial testing of the fluoridation system will commence in June. Fluoridated water will be delivered to your home or business during the testing phase. By early fall, all Water Agency customers will be receiving fluoridated water.
