Municipal code (Section 67)

San Diegans for Safe Drinking Water Legal Points

City of San Diego laws voted in by the people of San Diego

The City of San Diego has a Municipal code (Section 67) enacted by the citizens in 1954 that states “it is hereby declared to be unlawful for any person, including the City of San Diego and for its elective or appointed officers or employees, to use in or add to the water supply of this City any Fluorine, Sodium Fluoride, Sodium Silico Fluoride or any Fluoride compound, or to treat such water supply with aforesaid chemicals before delivery to the consumers thereof.”

First 5 Commission funds

-         Funding for the installation of tanks and two years of injections was paid for by tobacco tax funds.

-         State law communicates that no water district can be compelled to fluoridate unless funds come from sources “other than rate payers and tax payers.”

-         The original state fluoride bill AB 733 does not mention or authorize use of fluosilicic acid as a as a useable source of fluoride.

Misrepresentation by vendor

The City Council can not be compelled to add a substance that does not fulfill the state legislature’s intent that does not meet specific State law for the product’s manufacturer, and on other grounds within their municipal discretion — such as not purchasing a product for which the chemical manufacturer will not make a specific declaration of the contents or impurities.

Fluosilicic acid is not natural calcium fluoride.  Additionally, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and National Resource Council (NRC) have already published that drinking fluoridated water not decrease teeth cavities.
