The city of Bolivar may discontinue fluoridation of the city’s public water system due to rising costs, but members of the Board of Aldermen said Tuesday, March 30, they want to hear from the public before making a decision.
Discontinuing fluoridation could save the city about $40,000 this year and $17,000 in subsequent years, according to City Administrator Ron Mersch.
A Report of Sanitary Survey from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources sent to the city March 1 includes a mandatory recommendation to monitor chlorine residual and fluoride at the point of entry into the distribution system daily for each of the city’s five wells.
The city’s practice has been to check fluoride levels twice a month. Daily monitoring will require the city to pay someone to take samples manually every day, even on weekends and holidays, or to purchase an upgrade to the city’s SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system.
