Description:
The Health (Fluoridation of Water Supplies) Act, 1960 provides for the fluoridation of public piped water supplies in Ireland. The fluoridation is now achieved through the addition to the water supply of diluted hydrofluosilicic acid. The process is carried out by the water authorities who act in this matter as agents of the health boards but the onus of responsibility to ensure that fluoridation takes place lies with the health boards. In 1985, about 66% of the population received water from supplies which have been fluoridated. This percentage continues to grow as new regional water schemes replace small local schemes.
