Health in Boise, Idaho

Health is ranked on a scale of 1 (worst) to 100 (best).

Boise air quality is 32. (The US average is 58.)
This is based on new measures of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA, called the National Air Toxics Assessment. This analysis models respiratory illness and cancer risk down to the zip code level, providing better detail and insight than the previous analysis based solely on results from air monitoring stations.

Boise water quality is 20. (The US average is 55.)
Note that this is a measure of Watershed quality, not the water that comes from your faucet. The EPA has stated that a healthy watershed is closely related to drinking water quality. The EPA has a complex method of measuring watershed quality using 15 indicators such as pH, chemicals, metals, and bacteria.

Boise Superfund Index is 98. (The US average is 87.)
The EPA's Superfund program is responsible for cleaning up some of our nation's most contaminated land. Our index is based on the number of active Superfund sites (over 15,000 in the United States), with particular attention paid to those on the National Priorities List which pose the greatest health danger.

    No longer a "livable" city: Noisy Not Boise - 11/15/2019
    The urban sprawl here in Boise is staggering. Their idea of city planning/design does not derive any of its motivation from aesthetics, that's for sure. I agree that... Read More

    F**k Idaho in general - 10/25/2019
    Moved here 3 years ago. Biggest mistake I have EVER made. People in Idaho are some of the rudest, most stuck up, pieces of s**t I've ever encountered. When it's dark... Read More
