Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level Exceedance

To the Users of the Woodworth Utility System, this is an alert about your drinking water and a cosmetic dental problem that might affect children under nine years of age. At low levels, fluoride can help prevent cavities, but children drinking water containing more than 2.0 milligrams per liter (mg/L) of fluoride may develop cosmetic discoloration of their permanent teeth (dental fluorosis). The drinking water provided by your community water system, the Town of Woodworth Water System, had a fluoride concentration from 0.73. mg/L to 2.2 mg/L.
