The Cairns Regional Council says it has had no choice but to add fluoride to the water supply in Mossman and Port Douglas.
The Queensland Government ordered the council to fluoridate water in the region by December 31 but a residents’ group is asking for more time while it considers legal action to stop it.
The State Government has not responded to the council’s formal request to delay fluoridation and the council’s Bruce Gardiner says it has had to press ahead with the rollout.
