House OKs notification before fluoridation could stop

Public water systems could be required to notify Missouri customers before eliminating fluoride from drinking water.

Public water systems could be required to notify Missouri customers before eliminating fluoride from drinking water.

The Missouri House gave first-round approval Tuesday to the legislation. It would require notification at least 90 days before a vote to permanently cease fluoridation.

Water systems would need to inform customers, the Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Health and Senior Services.

The measure needs a second affirmative vote before moving to the state Senate.

The fluoride notification bill is HB1078.
