Abstract

Results are presented from a case study of the reactions of a select group of participants to problems faced by a class of communities experiencing groundwater contamination by fluoride. A total of 97 of 120 experts responded to a mailed questionnaire, and definite preferences were noted among certain aspects of the problem. Experts generally preferred immediate corrective action over further extensive research. They were willing to take personal action to obtain fluoride-free water rather than waiting for government response. They also generally agreed on strong local control for consumer protection. Survey data are tabulated.
