Safety issue closes city fluoride room

An employee safety issue was at the center of a decision to stop putting fluoride in Abilene’s water, in April.
City Manager David Dillner said the emergency safety switch in the fluoride room at the water treatment plant has become corroded making it nonfunctional. If a problem were to arise while an employee is preparing the fluoride, the employee would use that switch to alert other plant workers that they were in distress or that there was a problem.

That fills you with confidence in the water treatment.
