Does my water contain fluoride?
Fluoride can be found in nearly all naturally occurring water sources at varying levels, and has been added to public drinking water supplies throughout the United States since 1945 to promote dental health. After a 1969 Town meeting vote, Concord Health Department was authorized to order the upward adjustment of fluoride in Concord’s drinking water. Since that time, the Water and Sewer department has been adding fluoride to the Town’s drinking water supply in accordance with state and federal recommendations.


For treated drinking water, the U.S. Public Health Service and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend between 0.7 and 1.2 parts fluoride per million parts of water. Concord water strives to achieve and maintain a fluoride concentration of 1.0 parts per million (ppm) in its municipal drinking water supply.
