Strategic health authorities have agreements with the following water companies to supply water, to which fluoride has been added, to areas for which they are responsible: Anglian Water Services Ltd., Northumbrian Water Ltd., South Staffordshire Water plc, Severn Trent plc and United Utilities Water plc.

In addition, Northumbrian Water Ltd., Yorkshire Water Services Ltd. and Thames Water Utilities Ltd. supply water, in which fluoride occurs naturally, to some areas at levels approaching one part per million. This is the level at which water is artificially fluoridated.
