Health in Gig Harbor, Washington

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

Gig Harbor air quality is 61. (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.

Gig Harbor water quality is 60. (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.

Gig Harbor Superfund Index is 87. (The US average is 87.)
