Is the water fluoridated and if so why?

Natural groundwater in this area has around 0.3 milligrams per liter of fluoride in it. We add extra fluoride to the water to bring the level up to 0.8 to 1.2 milligrams per liter. Studies have shown that water with a fluoride level of 1 milligrams per liter will help prevent tooth decay. The State of Ohio mandated water fluoridation for all communities greater than 5000 in 1969.
