By zooming in on the map, Californians can see how different zip codes are ranked. The top three zip codes are in the Los Angeles area. Seven zip codes on the top 10 list are in San Joaquin Valley, which is in Central California.
The most vulnerable community in the state is West Fresno. Other zip codes in the top ten include Bakersfield, Stockton and the Los Angeles-area communities of Vernon, Baldwin Park, and Boyle Heights.
While Cal Enviroscreen measures things like traffic, hazardous waste facilities, and pesticides, top-scoring communities generally have high rates of air pollution.
What this means to you
California continues to use database technology to measure pollution sources by geographic areas. Cal Enviroscreen identifies and quantifies a variety of pollutants – with an emphasis on air pollution – down to the zip code level.
