In previous studies the water fluoride content of the larger cities in South Africa, and smaller towns in the Cape Province were recorded. This project was extended to include smaller towns (500 or more inhabitants) in the Transvaal, Orange Free State and Natal. Drinking water was collected in polypropylene containers and the fluoride content determined potentiometrically. The information obtained made it possible to compile a table setting out the fluoride content of the drinking water in these smaller towns. The study confirms a previous observation that water from boreholes has the highest (p < 0.05), and fountains the lowest fluoride content.
