The engineering aspects of school water fluoridation, with the exception of maintaining a higher fluoride level, are fundamentally similar to those of community water fluoridation. A simplified procedure for making a school fluoridation installation has been derived. The installation is based on the use of a saturator for automatically preparing fluoride solutions of fixed concentration. By choosing a point for fluoride injection where water flow and pressure are relatively constant, or at least vary only between regular limits, the need for frequent dosage adjustments is eliminated. In addition, a system for surveillance has been established which enables both the local operator and the supervisory authority to detect potential problems and take corrective action when indicated.
