Health in Henderson County, North Carolina

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

Henderson County 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.

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