GRAHAM/MEBANE, N.C. –Graham City Council’s vote to stop adding fluoride to the city’s water supply has caused a stir in Mebane, the city with which it shares its drinking water.

Graham’s Utilities Director Victor Quick, recommend that fluoride be taken out of the city’s drinking water, stating that it has been linked to cancers and other harmful diseases.

“It’s a trace of the budget. The staff sees it as a dangerous chemical,” Quick says.

Mebane leaders were shocked to learn of Graham’s decision.

“Eating too much is dangerous. It’s a matter of using things the way that they ought to be used,” said Glendel Stephenson, Mebane’s mayor.

Graham’s vote to stop using flouride in the water supply is contingent on the decision of the Mebane City Council. Unless Mebane decides to get rid of fluoride, the chemical will continue to be added to the Graham and Mebane drinking water.

Members of the Mebane City Council will meet on March 4.
