Fluoride occurs naturally in New Hampshire's bedrock. As such, it is frequently present in water samples taken from bedrock (artesian, drilled) wells. Fluoride is seen at high concentrations in bedrock wells in the Mt. Washington-Saco River Valley area, Wolfeboro through Franconia Notch and immediately west of Concord. In the remainder of New Hampshire, high fluoride concentrations occur more irregularly. Fluoride has no taste, color or odor and thus the only way to determine its concentration… Expand
A Review of Fluoride Removal from Groundwater
Most of the arid and semiarid zones of the Indian subcontinent are seriously affected by the fluorosis problem due to high concentration of the fluoride in ground water. Due to leaching of fluorideExpand
High Fluoride, Modest Fluorosis: Investigation in Drinking Water Supply in Halaba (SNNPR, Ethiopia)
In Halaba district in Southern Ethiopia fluoride levels from boreholes are high (2.6 to 7.0 mg/l), yet the incidence of fluorosis is modest. Drinking water users living in the vicinity of fourExpand
Status of fluoride in ground water of several villages of Modasa Taluka, North Gujarat for drinking purpose
Fluoride concentration of ground water samples from several villages of Modasa taluka, Dist- Sabarkantha (N.G.) was determined. Out of 88 sources of 23 villages 34 sources were found to have fluorideExpand
High fluoride water in Bondo-Rarieda area of Siaya County, Kenya: a hydro-geological implication on public health in the Lake Victoria Basin
TLDR
Groundwater fluoride decreased with increasing distance from the lake indicating that water fluoride may have hydro-geologically been translocated into the region from geochemical sources outside the area. Expand
Estimation of fluoride in the drinking water of Tengakhat circle of the Dibrugarh district, Assam
It is very essential to know the concentration of fluoride in drinking water. In this study, fluoride concentration and some other parameters of the ground water of Tengakhat circle of DibrugarhExpand
Fluoride Contamination in Groundwater: A Pilot Study on Dug Well Recharge System for In situ Mitigation
Dissolved ions concentration in groundwater beyond the recommended limits is a major problem as they make the water unsuitable for drinking purpose. Fluorine commonly found in certain rocks isExpand
Fluoride occurrence in groundwater systems at global scale and status of defluoridation – State of the art
Abstract The occurrence of elevated concentrations of fluoride in the drinking water supply in many regions of the world has caused widespread prevalence of dental and skeletal fluorosis. In thisExpand
Defluoridation by coagulation in drinkable water from the south east of Algeria
The drinkable water in the south east of Algeria contains high quantity of fluoride which causes dental fluorosis. To decrease fluoride, we have chosen a sample with the biggest content of fluorideExpand
Appraisal of Fluoride Concentration, Distribution and Geogenic Origin in Ground and Surface Water from Semi-Arid Region, Part of Yobe State North-eastern Nigeria
The Fluoride concentration of water sources from part of Yobe State has been investigated, Fluoride levels in Pond water is between 0.71 and 1.36 mg/l, Dugwells concentration is from 0.00 to 1.5mg/l.Expand
Fluoride in Groundwater: Toxicological Exposure and Remedies
TLDR
There is a need to develop workable strategies to provide fluoride-safe drinking water to rural communities due to limitations and various cost-effective and simple procedures for water defluoridation techniques are already known, but the benefits of such techniques have not reached the rural affected population.

TLDR
The average daily fluorine intake of a community must be investigated well in order to estimate whether or not there is reason to add fluorine to the drinking water and if so, what is the safe but adequate concentration. Expand
