Can you guess which city is the most toxic?

Chicago ranks third on Forbes‘ list of America’s most toxic cities. Atlanta and Detroit won the first and second spots, while Houston tied for third.
But Chicago topped two of the categories used to rank the cities. It
has by far the most toxic facilities, 778 to second-place L.A’s 440,
and the most sites on the EPA’s list of places that need remediation.

See the Forbes report, or this write-up on Huffington Post, for more of the numbers. The Chicago Reporter covered our city’s toxic neighbors last year, in this investigation.
