Fluoride bungle not acceptable: Bligh


www.abc.net.au

Queensland Premier Anna Bligh says residents should receive an apology over an excessive release of fluoride in drinking water supplies.

For three hours earlier this month some residents at Brendale and Warner, just north of Brisbane, were drinking water with a fluoride concentration 20 times higher than the recommended maximum limit.

The state Opposition says it should not have taken nearly two weeks for the Government to find out about the bungle

Well this is some cause for concern, and should add fuel to the fluoride debate in Australia. Also there are other aspects on top of the fluoride at 20 times more than recommended which is unforgivable in itself. First it take 12 days for the results to come in thats not right, then there is a malfunction with a system that that disperses fluoride and also the fact that no resident will legally be able to seek compensation from the goverment(see related links).

The revelation came as the Queensland Government yesterday sent apology letters to the 4000 people in northern Brisbane whose water was dosed with 30 milligrams of fluoride per litre, rather than the 1.5mg/litre maximum, for three hours on May 2.
Mike Foster, a spokesman for Queensland government water authority Seqwater, yesterday admitted that up to three safeguard systems at the North Pine treatment plant had malfunctioned, allowing the fluoride overdose to occur.
The plant had been shut down for maintenance between April 27 and 30, but the dosing machinery continued to pour fluoride into the system.
When the plant came back online, a concentrated amount of fluoride flowed into the system and was not detected until another water company tested water in the pipeline, a process that took two weeks.
The Queensland Health Department's code of practice for water fluoridation warns of the need for back-up systems to prevent accidental overdoses. It specifically warns of the potential to overdose if the water supply is cut off but the fluoride continues to dose, as happened last month.

So Qld health even warns of this exact problem and the need for back up systems, was that ignored totally?
And the goverment has a get out clause incase of fluoride related incidents, how convieniant. Fluoride in those doses can cause many problems at just 4mg's and they put 30mg in. And residents will have to foot the bill for medical checkups themselves. I wonder if anybody will come forward with any ill effects.
