Fluoride in Warrumbungle Shire water supply

Due to ongoing technical issues the towns throughout the Warrumbungle local government area are not currently having fluoride added to their supplies.

Warrumbungle Shire Council operates town water supplies in each of the following towns; Coonabarabran, Coolah, Dunedoo, Baradine, Binnaway and Mendooran. With the exception of Dunedoo fluoride is normally added to each of these supplies. Dunedoo does not have fluoride added to the water as there is sufficient naturally occurring fluoride already in the water.

Unfortunately this fault has been an ongoing issue and one that is being experienced by other similar sized facilities across NSW. The failure has been a design fault and NSW Health is currently addressing the issues.

NSW Health will assist with the renewal of fluoridation systems in the coming months.
