To figure out which cities could be deemed the most toxic, Forbes looked at the country’s 40 largest metropolitan statistical areas. Next, they counted the number of toxin-releasing facilities, the total pounds of certain toxic chemicals that was released into the air, ground and water, the days per year that the air pollution reached healthy levels, and the number of incidents that the EPA responded to reports of a potentially hazardous environment. Las Vegas reported 5 EPA responses, 50 number of facilities releasing toxic chemicals and 2,075,237 pounds of toxic chemicals released in the area. The number ranking city, Atlanta, scored 58 days, 277 facilities, and 41,502,855 chemicals released in the area.
