Fluoride Information

Water fluoridation is the controlled addition of fluoride to a public water supply to reduce tooth decay.

LCA does not actively treat our groundwater supplies with fluoride. However, we do add fluoride at the water plant for our Allentown Division, which supplies much of western Lehigh County. We also purchase water from neighboring water systems that contain fluoride. Some customer areas have fluoride in the tap water and some do not.

Since customers need to have fluoride information to make important health decisions, please visit our water service area map to review more detailed information about your system.
