Is my water fluoridated?

Yes. Most water sources have naturally occurring Fluoride, including El Dorado lake, which has about 0.20 ppm of Fluoride. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment recommends a dosage of no more than 0.7 ppm, so we add another 0.30 ppm to the 0.20 naturally occurring for a total concentration of 0.50 ppm. El Dorado has been fluoridating water since the 1950's.
