Health in Irmo, South Carolina

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

Irmo air quality is 50. (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.

Irmo water quality is 56. (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.

Irmo Superfund Index is 88. (The US average is 87.)
The EPA's Superfund program is responsible for cleaning up some of our nation's most contaminated land.
