No comment on fluoride removal from Gladstone water

GLADSTONE Regional Council has not confirmed when it will stop adding fluoride to our water supply.

The vote to remove fluoride was made at the July 19 Gladstone Regional Council meeting after the motion was put forward by councillor Kahn Goodluck.

The same day, the Gladstone Observer reported it was expected to take 40 days to phase out.
