Fluoride in water

Fluoridation is the term used to describe the dosing of water supplies to bring the fluoride level up to 1mg/l as a public health measure intended to prevent tooth decay. The maximum permitted value of fluoride in drinking water is 1.5mg/l [milligrammes per litre].

In England, the decision to fluoridate your water supply is made by your local authority. When deciding whether to fluoridate a local authority must carry out a public consultation exercise. The law only permits a water company to fluoridate under a contract with Public Health England. The water company has to be consulted about the technical feasibility of any proposed scheme. In Wales, health decisions about fluoridation are taken by the Welsh Government.

Water companies are only permitted to use specified fluoridation chemicals in accordance with European standards. These standards specify purity levels and producers are not permitted to sell chemicals unless these purity criteria are met.

Fluoride is naturally present at low levels in most drinking water in England and Wales.

If you wish to drink and use fluoride free water, you can! We have a range of fluoride filters to suit your exact requirements.

Is my water fluoridated?

Fluoride is naturally present at low levels in most drinking water so can be considered as not requiring treatment unless you have a very specific intolerance.

In the UK there is no artificially added fluoride in Scotland, Wales or Northern Irelend, however; some regional Local Authorities in England have opted to fluoridate the public drinking water supply and there are also a few naturally high fluoride areas.

Here is a list roughly indicating fluoridated and higher natural fluoride areas:

  • Most of Northumberland (artificially fluoridated up to a max of 0.99mg/l)
  • Most of west Cumbria (artificially fluoridated up to a max of 0.99mg/l)
  • County Durham around Hartlepool (naturally occurring up a max of 1.5mg/l in some areas)
  • Parts of South Humberside, North Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire (artificially fluoridated up to a max of 0.99mg/l)
  • Part of Cheshire around and including Crewe (artificially fluoridated up to a max of 0.99mg/l)
  • Most of Staffordshire and the West Midlands including Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Dudley and Coventry (artificially fluoridated up to a max of 0.99mg/l)
  • Parts of Worcestershire and Warwickshire (artificially fluoridated up to a max of 0.99mg/l)
  • Most of Bedforshire (artificially fluoridated up to a max of 0.49mg/l)
  • Parts of Suffolk and Essex (naturally occurring up a max of 1.5mg/l)
  • Small area of Wiltshire around Chippenham and Devizes (naturally occurring up a max of 0.99mg/l)
  • Small area of Berkshire rast of Newbury (naturally occurring up a max of 0.99mg/l)
