SPRING HILL — City leaders voted unanimously Monday to quit adding fluoride to city water.
Alderman Amy Wurth asked the Board of Mayor and Aldermen for the change, saying that not all city residents may need the supplement because it appears in many more sources than it did in 1945, when fluoridation began as a way to reduce dental decay.
Twelve states and the District of Columbia require fluoride use in public water systems. In Tennessee, community water systems make that decision locally.
