Reduction in fluoride in Edmonton's Public Water Supply

Edmonton, on the advice of Health Canada has reduced the concentration of fluoride in the public water supply to 0.7 ppm (parts per million) from 0.8 ppm based on an expert panel's recommendation. Here's the teaser quote from the Edmonton Sun:

Edmonton-area residents will soon have less fluoride in their tap water, thanks to Health Canada.

Capital Health's Dr. Gerry Predy told Sun Media that he will ask EPCOR, which provides water to the city and surrounding communities, to reduce the maximum amount of the chemical that it adds to the water supply, from 0.8 parts per million to 0.7 ppm.
