After years without fluoride, parts of Windsor-Essex will have the mineral added back into drinking water systems Wednesday.
This week, residents in Windsor, Tecumseh and LaSalle will have fluoride flowing into their water systems for the first time since 2013. During a media briefing Monday, the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit’s (WECHU) acting medical officer of health, Dr. Shanker Nesathurai, said this is a “positive step.”
“As a public health intervention, fluoridation of water is a good thing,” Nesathurai said.
