The Madison Water Utility Board said this week that it would continue to add fluoride to the city's drinking water.
The utility board voted at its meeting Tuesday night to keep its fluoride policy. The city's been adding fluoride to water to improve dental health for 68 years since the policy was adopted in 1946.
Madison Water Utility currently aims for a target fluoride concentration of 0.7 parts per million, as recommended by county, national and international health agencies.
In a news release Wednesday, the city of Madison said it took public comments on the policy Tuesday for about two hours before the vote.
The policy will be reviewed again in 2024.
