The Community Water Fluoridation Program of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) provides scientific and technical expertise to communities interested in fluoridating their drinking water. California's fluoridated drinking water act, Assembly Bill 733, became law in 1995, authorizing water systems with 10,000 or more service connections to fluoridate once money from an outside source is provided. CDPH is also responsible for identifying funds to purchase and install fluoridation equipment for public water systems.
