Health in Carrboro, North Carolina

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

Carrboro air quality is 53. (The US average is 58.)
This is based on new measures of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA, called the National Air Toxics Assessment.

Carrboro water quality is 73. (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.

Carrboro Superfund Index is 98. (The US average is 87.)
