“The [Anchorage, Alaska) Mayor’s staff and AWWU’s [Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility] staff had an open and healthy discussion about fluoride during his plant tour,” Corsentino said in the statement. “AWWU staff did express to the Mayor that the handling of the fluoride chemical used to add to our water is a dangerous hazardous chemical. While they are professionals and well trained in handling it, the general sentiment of the operators who work with it would be to prefer not to handle it as they have experienced occasional unreportable health and irritation effects after handling it, even with all the proper OSHA compliant protocols and PPE being used.” https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/anchorage/2021/12/18/days-after-mayors-office-denied-it-happened-details-continue-to-emerge-on-decision-to-briefly-shut-off-fluoride-in-anchorage-water-supply/
