The Texas Department of State Health Services is pleased to announce that the City of Alice has been awarded a Water Fluoridation Quality Award from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  This award recognizes those communities in Texas that maintained a consistent level of optimally fluoridated water through 2017.   Community water fluoridation has been recognized by CDC as one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th Century.  Fluoridating a community’s water supplies is one of the most effective public health measures to prevent tooth decay.
