The EPA's Bruce Dawson says the fluoride is being absorbed by the nearby vegetation which is then being eaten by the kangaroos.
He says the fluoride poisons the kangaroos and makes lesions grow on their bones, which renders them lame.
"Once kangaroos have restricted movement [it] has a significant impact on their welfare. So this is something that needs to be managed and avoided."
He says there is not a lot of information around about the impact of fluoride on kangaroos.
The problem is more common in cattle.
"There was a lot of research done in the 60s and 70s in the United States but this really has just started to emerge in terms of the impacts on kangaroos."

Brisbane given Fluoride overdose on May 2
May 16, 2009 12:00am
THE Bligh Government's handling of the fluoride overdose was in disarray last night after it admitted it got the date wrong about when the bungle occurred.
The Government has admitted residents should have been told they may have drunk water with 20 times the allowable amount of fluoride on May 2 - not May 1 as Premier Anna Bligh said on Thursday.
The blunder is a major embarrassment for the Government, already defending the two-week delay in testing that preceeded this week's health notification to residents on Brisbane's northside.
The Premier was unavailable last night but SEQ Water Grid Manager director Nicole Davis confirmed the water entered supplies in the Brendale and Warner areas on May 2 for three hours between 9am and midday.
It means the water flowed on the Saturday morning putting many more residents at risk.

WORST AUSTRALIAN FLUORIDE ACCIDENT
Premier Bligh today announced an accident at the North Pine Dam Water treatment plant on May 1st when water massively overdosed with Sodium Silicofluoride was released into the public water supply.
About 4,000 homes are believed to have received water containing 30mg/l fluoride. This level is nearly 40 times higher than the 0.8 mg/L Qld Health advised in Nov 2008 was to be the level for water supplies in SE Qld.
Water with 30 mg/L fluoride ion is equivalent to 120 fluoride tablets per litre of water, or 30 fluoride tablets per 250 ml glass, yet the Premier has denied that there was a health risk.
It seems to me that the Councillors who voted for fluoridation, did so based on a questionable Survey taken on 300 people, a questionable presentation given by NSW Health and had already made up their mind before the Public Meeting. A Public Meeting that was very poorly advertised. There has been no real effort to gain the opinion of the residents of the Lithgow Council Area.
The amendment moved by Cr. Martin Ticehurst that the decision be deferred until a Poll be conducted at the 2008 Council Elections failed to get a seconder. This shows that NO Councillors except Cr. Martin Ticehurst were willing to give the Lithgow residents a democratic say for or against the Fluoridation of Lithgow water. Remember this at the 2008 Council Elections.
