Philadelphia, The Capital of Toxicity?
 
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 03/03/11 9:38 am | updated: 03/03/11 9:38 am
 
A Forbes magazine article this week ranked Philly No. 1 on its "America's 10 Most Toxic Cities" list.
Forbes staffers based the list on five measurements, three drawn from a website that compiles data on U.S. cities but warns users not to "assume that the provided content is error-free."
Philadelphia's water-quality rating on this site was what pushed the city into the No. 1 spot.
Even though its three treatment plants received an award from the Partnership for Safe Water in 2008.
Again, Forbes data source was a site they warn the content is not error free.
Do you think Forbes had some space to fill and threw together a column based on shoddy stats?
