Middle TN town to remove fluoride from drinking water

Posted: Updated:
LAWRENCEBURG, TN (WSMV) -

One Middle Tennessee town is making a change to the community's water supply.

The Lawrenceburg utility board voted Thursday to stop fluoridating the city's water.

Public water systems have added fluoride for decades, in an effort to prevent tooth decay. But opponents question the safety of drinking it.

Several Tennessee towns have already eliminated fluoride from the drinking water in recent years.

Spring Hill leaders voted to remove fluoride just a few weeks ago.
