Holmen to Re Introduce Fluoride in Water Supply


HOLMEN, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The Village of Holmen looks at re-introducing fluoride into their water supply at their Thursday night board meeting.

Two years ago, a binding referendum was passed to introduce fluoride but later blocked by a motion from the board to wait for a letter from the EPA with guidelines on amounts of the chemical before following through on the referendum results.

Village President, Nancy Proctor said, "At the time that we passed our resolution we were the only municipality on this side of the state of Wisconsin that did not have fluoride in our public water."

The village board is scheduled to meet Thursday night at 7pm to approve the re-introduction of fluoride to the water supply. They hope to have the system back online by February 1.
