Introduction:Through energy consumptions, recycling, and different kinds of operations, numerous facilities are disposing and releasing a significant amount of chemicals every day. Within all those chemicals, some could be functioned as fertilizers while most are toxic, threatening both the environment and people’s health. The purpose of this project is to find out the areas with relatively serious toxic concentration in the south part of the Puget Sound region (Pierce, King, and Kitsap County), as well as who are the most affected people in those areas. The general public who are interested in environmental issues might get the idea of the toxicity around this area. Besides, city planners might use this as a reference of whether new regulations about releasing toxic would be necessary.
