The decision to add fluoride to Portland’s drinking water will be determined by a public vote in the May 21, 2013 Special Election. Ballots will be mailed to registered Portland voters on Friday, May 3, 2013.
On September 12, 2012, the Portland City Council unanimously passed Ordinance No. 185612 that authorized and directed the Portland Water Bureau to add fluoride to the drinking water supply. Through a citizen referendum process, the Council’s decision is now subject to a public vote.
For informational purposes, the Portland Water Bureau has posted a list of answers to Frequently Asked Questions we’ve received from the public and news media on water fluoridation. The page is online at http://www.portlandoregon.gov/water/fluoride.
