Dear Hartlepool Water,
Do you add flouride to our tapwater?
If so, can you tell me where you get it, how much you add, and why you add it?
Thank you for your request.
I confirm the following:
o Hartlepool Water does not add fluoride during the water treatment
o All potable water is obtained from the Magnesian Limestone aquifer
located in South East Durham and is highly mineralised.
o The source waters contain natural levels of fluoride such that the
final blend of water supplied to customers contains fluoride to the
value of 0.9 to 1.3mg/l as F
o All water supplied complies with the requirements of the water quality
regulations in respect of fluoride.
o The source of water in Hartlepool has changed little over many
I trust that this will assist.
