This is an original press photo. George Moore works at a weighing machine, determining the amount of flouride to let out of the reservoir into the water supply. The flouride drops into the reservoir thorough the chute atop weighing machine at upper right. The reservoir is immediately behind the weighing machine. Moore's work is to fit the flouride prescription to the amount of water being pumped out to city at the given moment.

Fluoride is the anion F?, the reduced form of fluorine when as an ion and when bonded to another element. Both organofluorine compounds and inorganic fluorine containing compounds are called fluorides.[2] Fluoride, like other halides, is a monovalent ion (?1 charge). Its compounds often have properties that are distinct relative to other halides. Structurally, and to some extent chemically, the fluoride ion resembles the hydroxide ion. Fluorine-containing compounds range from potent toxins such as sarin to life-saving pharmaceuticals such as efavirenz, and from inert materials such as carbon tetrafluoride to the highly reactive sulfur tetrafluoride. The range of fluorine-containing compounds is vast because fluorine is capable of forming compounds with all the elements except helium and neon.[3][4]
Compounds containing fluoride anions and in many cases those containing covalent bonds to fluorine are called fluorides.
