Furnishing impure water for public use unlawful; concentration of fluoride in water.

Every owner, agent, manager, operator or other person having charge of any waterworks furnishing water for public use who shall:


Knowingly permit any act or omit any duty or precaution by reason whereof the purity or healthfulness of the water supplied shall become impaired is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.


Fail to adjust the naturally occurring fluoride concentration of the water to levels recommended by public health authorities when there has been approval by a majority of the votes cast pursuant to NRS 445A.045, or who shall adjust such concentration if such approval has not been obtained, is guilty of a misdemeanor. The provisions of this subsection do not apply to purveyors of bottled water who label their containers to inform the purchaser that the naturally occurring fluoride concentration of the water has been adjusted to recommended levels.
