    The fluoride dosing facility servicing Brisbane's major water treatment plants at Mt Crosby will be taken off line for a major upgrade.

    The Holts Hill Fluoride Dosing Facility provides fluoridation for treated water produced at the Mt Crosby East Bank Water Treatment Plant (WTP) and West Bank WTP, which supply the majority of treated drinking water to Brisbane, Ipswich and Logan. Acting Seqwater chief executive officer Dan Spiller said the upgrade would allow for the ongoing safe fluoridation of drinking water provided by both plants into the future.
