Corrosion discovered at one of the City of Madisonville’s water wells sparked a discussion about fluoride levels in the City’s drinking water at a recent City Council meeting.
City Council at its regular meeting May 14 discussed the possibility of ceasing to add the chemical to the City’s supply altogether or reducing the amount injected into the system.
Currently, the City injects enough fluoride into its drinking water to bring the level to between 0.7 and 0.8 parts per million, a level recommended by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Council members and city staff questioned the impact that injecting fluoride into the City’s water system has and will continue to research the issue and prepare a recommendation for a later meeting.
“If we’re going to continue to lower (fluoride levels in the water), it might just be best to take it out of the system altogether,” Public Works Director Kevin Story said.
City staff discovered corrosion at Water Well No. 5 approximately one month ago and upon contacting an engineer received the recommendation that they reduce the level of fluoride being injected into the water supply. Read more…
Any experienced runner can educate you on why it is important to stay properly hydrated before you run, while you run and after you have finished a run. A healthy fluid intake helps runners to avoid suffering dehydration and heat exhaustion.

NEW YORK — Bottled water is coming under attack on college campuses.
More than 90 schools, among them Brown and Harvard universities, are banning the sale or restricting the use of plastic water bottles, unnerving the $22 billion retail packaged-water industry in the United States.
Freshmen at colleges nationwide are being greeted with stainless-steel bottles in their welcome packs and encouraged to use hydration stations where free, filtered water is available. Brown, which once sold about 320,000 bottles of water a year in vending machines and campus stores, ended sales in dining halls in 2010. Harvard and Dartmouth College are installing hydration stations in new buildings to reduce trash.
