Health in Puryear, Tennessee

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

Puryear air quality is 72. (The US average is 58.)
This is based on new measures of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA, called the National Air Toxics Assessment.

Puryear water quality is 80. (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.

Puryear Superfund Index is 84. (The US average is 87.)
