Does Troy add fluoride to the drinking water?
In two past referendums, the citizens of Troy have voted to not fluoridate Troy's drinking water, so NO fluoride is added to the drinking water by the City of Troy. Water drawn from the city's wells does contain naturally occurring fluoride, and this persists through the treatment process. The level of fluoride in the tap water averages 0.3 to 0.4 parts per million (ppm). If fluoride is added to drinking water, the current recommendation from the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) for fluoride is a range of 0.7 to 1.2 ppm.
