The fluoride that is put into water significantly aids in dental protection. The chemical has been studied more thoroughly than any other public health measure throughout the past 50 years. Every major health organization in the U.S. recommends fluoridation. The amount of fluoride that is put into the water is equivalent to 0.8 parts per million (ppm). To put this in layman's terms, the amount of fluoride injected into the water is equivalent to 1 minute in 2 years; or 1 penny in $10,000.
After these chemicals are injected into the water, it goes to a ground storage tank for stabilization, to allow the chemicals to interact with the water, and to disinfect it for use and consumption. Our water plants can pump and process up to 9.5 million gallons of water per day during the peak season. The peak season is March through September. During the other 5 months, the plant processes up to 5 million gallons of water per day.
