Leon County's Air Worse Than National Average?

Scorecard, the pollution information site rates air and water quality and has a tool that can compare different communities.

Leon County rates well in low rates of toxic releases into the environment; toxic release into the water; toxic release to land and fairly well in toxic release from farm animals. However, our County rates poorly in cancer risk from outdoor air. Duval County is worst in this category of those compared.

Compare this and other factors such as lead hazards at the scorecard site.
