For example, based on the Purdex Score the best and worst water systems in the top 10 metropolitan areas (by population) are:
Best Water Systems
1. Chicago (783)
2. Boston (737)
3. Philadelphia (687)
4. Atlanta (684)
5. Miami (656)
Worst Water Systems
1. Los Angeles (101)
2. Houston (236)
3. Washington, DC (436)
4. Dallas (619)
5. New York City (638)
"We think people will be surprised by the results. For example, despite its great taste the Purdex Score for New York City is lower than most people would expect due to higher concentrations of some contaminants," said Michael Keegan, co-founder of Purdex.
The Purdex Score website also provides context such as water system ranking, trending analysis, and information about contaminants. The Purdex database contains millions of sample test results for hundreds of drinking water contaminants, collected from over 50,000 community water systems nationwide. The database is updated on a regular basis once new sample test results are officially validated.
Purdex also offers Purdex Mark, an independent certification that enables businesses to generate awareness about the purity of their water and water-related products.
