2014 Water Fluoridation Quality Award

The Minnesota Department of Health announced that Crookston's Water Division of Public Works has been awarded a Water Fluoridation Quality Award from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Fluoridation is the adjustment of fluoride in drinking water to a level that is effective for preventing tooth decay. The award recognizes those communities that achieved excellence in community water fluoridation by maintaining a consistent level of fluoridated water throughout 2014.

For 2014, 112 of the 625 fluoridating public water systems in Minnesota received this award.
