Queensland Health Fact Sheet – Naturally Occurring Fluoride In Quilpie’s Drinking Water
Fluoride is a natural element often found in water, plants, rocks, soil, air and some foods. Research shows that fluoride helps protect teeth against tooth decay. Regularly drinking water containing small amounts of fluoride can help reduce tooth decay for people of all ages.
Monitoring of Quilpie’s drinking water supply has indicated that it contains naturally occurring fluoride at an average concentration slightly above the recommended limit in the Guidelines. There are two side effects that have been associated with elevated levels of fluoride in drinking water. The first is dental fluorosis and the second is skeletal fluorosis, which only occurs with very high levels of fluoride.
Declared Water Supply Service Areas
In accordance with the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008, Council adopted the Declared Water Supply Service areas for Quilpie and Eromanga at its meeting held on Friday 12 June 2020.
