ELMIRA - [WENY] Elmira water plant staff were presented an award today from the Chemung County Dental Society. The award is for the 60 years of fluoridation water with the plant. The water plant puts fluoride in the water supply to help fight tooth decay.
Tom Curran, the Chairman of Water Fluoridation Committee says, "The water board works day in and day out, providing services to Chemung County residents, and I hate that no one has said, wonderful job for the 60 years of work."
According to the CDC, over 200 million people across the Country have fluoride in their water supplies.
