UPDATE: FLUORIDATION IN SONOMA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA & THE NATION
The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors has postponed indefinitely any consideration of the Sonoma County Department of Health Services (DHS) proposal to fluoridate Sonoma County water (originally on the Board agenda 5/19/2015).
However, Jay Kumar, California’s new Director of Dental Health, is promoting a plan to pay initial water fluoridation costs using Medicaid funds. Kumar was instrumental in setting up the pilot program now in effect in New York State, and he would like to take it nation-wide, state by state.

MMWD UPDATE FROM CWSM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DAWNA GALLAGHER-STROEH
Many, many thanks to MMWD Fluoridation Moratorium Initiative Sponsors, Dr. Brian J. Smith, and Dr. Laurence Rose, to all of you who signed the initiative petition, donated, shared information, labored over precinct lists, and collected signatures to support clean fluoride-free water in Marin! You are awesome!
Because of concerns about the health effects of fluoridation chemicals on vulnerable populations dependent on District water, the lack of specific information about levels of contaminants in each batch, and the need for reassurance that fluoridation chemical manufacturers stand behind the safety of their product when used as directed, over 8000 District voters signed the MMWD Fluoridation Moratorium Initiative petition. The initiative failed to qualify for the ballot, but those legitimate concerns remain.
Everyone in the Marin Municipal Water District, whether or not he or she believes in water fluoridation as an oral health intervention, has a stake in fluoridation safety.
We are continuing to attend MMWD Board meetings 1) to request that water bills include a parents’ advisory about the risks of using fluoridated water to reconstitute baby formula, 2) to encourage MMWD Board members to request the safety studies themselves, and 3) to update the Board on the latest studies as they are published.
Thank you again!
