Arkansas, Arkansas Health Index

Air quality in Arkansas, Arkansas is 53 on a scale to 100 (higher is better). This is based on new measures of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA, called the National Air Toxics Assessment.

Water quality in Arkansas, Arkansas is 79 on a scale to 100 (higher is better). Note that this is a measure of Watershed quality, not the water that comes from your faucet.

The EPA has a complex method of measuring watershed quality using 15 indicators such as pH, chemicals, metals, and bacteria.

Superfund index is 95 on a scale to 100 (higher is better). The EPA’s Superfund program is responsible for cleaning up some of our nation’s most contaminated land.
