Health in Fort Wayne, Indiana

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

Fort Wayne air quality is 66. (The US average is 58.)
This is based on new measures of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA, called the National Air Toxics Assessment.

Fort Wayne water quality is 23. (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.

Fort Wayne Superfund Index is 93. (The US average is 87.)
