Water Treatment Plant recognized for Water Fluoridation Quality Award

Congratulations to the MWC Public Works - Water Treatment Plant on receiving the 2016 Water Fluoridation Quality Award.  This award recognizes public water systems in Oklahoma that, for twelve months of the year, have adjusted the fluoride in water to the optimal level needed for the prevention of tooth decay.

The award was presented by the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Dental Association.  These groups note that the effectiveness of water fluoridation in the prevention of tooth decay has been well documented for 70 years.  They state that by reducing the need for fillings and tooth extractions, fluoridation saves money for families and taxpayers.

Congratulations Water Treatment Plant team!!
