Clean Water for a Healthy Environment

The Trinity River Authority of Texas is a conservation and reclamation district providing water and wastewater treatment, along with recreation and reservoir facilities, for municipalities within the nearly 18,000-square-mile Trinity River basin.  TRA also maintains a master plan for basin-wide development, and serves as a conduit for tax-exempt financing for municipal projects and as a local sponsor for federal water projects.  Each TRA operating project is an independent financial entity, and TRA receives no tax revenues or appropriations.

With little dissent, the Dallas City Council on Wednesday voted to approve a $1 million contract to fluoridate Dallas’ water supply for the next three years.

Only Sheffie Kadane and Adam Medrano voted against the $1,060,800 contract with Mosaic Crop Nutrition to add the cavity-fighting chemical to the city’s drinking water.

The vote follows months of debate on whether the council should flush the compound from Dallas’ water. A small but vocal faction of fluoride foes found a single true ally in Kadane, who said his reasons for opposition were both financial and scientific.
