Letter from Superintendent: Discontinuation of fluoridation

A letter from Superintendent Clark to parents, guardians and staff dated March 9, 2018, states:

In accordance with the requirements for noncommunity water systems, Title 25 Pa. Code § 109.409©(2), this letter is to inform you that the Northeast Bradford School District has been granted permission, by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, to cease fluoridation of the water that serves the elementary school. Discontinuation of fluoridation to the elementary school will be on or about April 9, 2018.

As a reminder, there have been several changes made to our water system that has prompted the district to move forward with the removal of fluoride. We have installed water tanks at the high school that now supply water to the entire district. Water for both facilities is now supplied by the two wells located on the premises of the high school.

In addition, any person aggrieved by this action may appeal, pursuant to Section 4 of the Environmental Hearing Board Act, 35 P.S. Section 7514, and the Administrative Agency Law, 2 Pa. C.S. Chapter SA. Appeals must be filed with the Environmental Hearing Board within 30 days of receipt of this letter.
