SAVINGS COME WHEN SILICOFLUORIDE GOES

 

Everett City Council

City Attorney James D. Iles

Everett, WA 98201

Dear Council Members,

I write as vice-president of Washington Action for Safe Water. See www.WashingtonSafeWater.com.

If fluoridation is terminated, how much would the city save?

1)       If the city terminated fluoridation, it would save around $___________ per year (probably around $200,000), the sum it uses to buy industrial grade toxic waste silicofluoride for injection into drinking water. Consult with Everett Utilities for the exact figure.

2)       If the city terminated fluoridation, it would save the $___________ (I estimate $50,000, around $120 per ton) it spends each year on chemicals needed to neutralize the acidity caused by silicofluoride. Common alkalizers are sodium hydroxide (Draino®) or sodium carbonate (soda ash). For every ton of fluorosilicic acid used, a half ton of alkalizer must be used.

3)       If the city terminated fluoridation, it would not be spending additional tens of thousands of dollars operating and maintain its fluoridation facilities.
