Fluorosis is an important public health problem in parts of India and is endemic in 20 out of 35 states and union territories. As high as 70% to 100% of the districts are affected with fluorosis in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan. Fluoride levels in Andhra Pradesh vary from 0.4 mg/l to a very high level of 29 mg/l. Since May 2007, a new water source was established (river Krishna water from Nagarjunsagar dam) to provide water to Nalgonda district, which had permissible limits of fluoride.
