Sacramento Is One Of The Top 10 Most Polluted Cities In The Nation

While the quality of the air has improved over the years, Sacramento still comes in as one of the top most polluted cities in the entire nation, making the list at number 8.

According to Olivia Diaz-Lapham, president and CEO of the American Lung Association in California “Californians [are] at risk for premature death and other serious health effects such as asthma, (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and lung cancer…there are too many areas where residents are breathing dirty air and we must work to reduce all sources of air pollution.”

Los Angeles, Bakersfield, Fresno and Modesto also made the top 10. You can read more in the Sacramento Bee.
