Health in Leander, Texas

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

Leander air quality is 68. (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.
