Visit “My Water’s Fluoride” to determine the water fluoridation level in your specific community. Select Illinois, find your county and then the nearest water source.   This will tell you the fluoride concentration of that water source. This is only for municipal water systems.  To test the fluoride levels in well water, contact the Illinois Department of Public Heath at 217-785-4899  for a free fluoride testing kit
