What's the rush? - Nov 5
If fluoride in our water is good for us, why not wait for Byron Bay to come on board?
Because Byron Bay doesn’t want fluoride in their water, Rous Water intends to build four fluoride injection points. One in Dorroughby, one in Corndale, one in Clunes, and one at Knockrow, quadrupling not only the cost but also the danger.
If Rous waited, one injection point could be built at their treatment works at Rocky Creek Dam, saving the cost of acquiring four blocks of land, four buildings, four sets of machinery, and four sites to monitor and maintain.
Rous has a secure site at Rocky Creek Dam treatment works where they use and store chlorine. Fluoride is also very toxic in its concentrated form. Both should be kept at one site, and not all over the countryside.
What is going on? Surely we can wait and do it properly!
