Health in Bluffton, South Carolina

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

Bluffton air quality is 67. (The US average is 58.)
This is based on new measures of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA, called the National Air Toxics Assessment.

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