Ugh. This isn’t a list you want to make. The American Lung Association has released its 20th Annual State of the Air report, and Sacramento is in the top 5! The report ranks the most polluted cities by “Ozone,” “Year Round Particle Pollution,” and “Short-Term Particle Pollution.” Fox 40 reports the Sacramento-Roseville area landed 5th in the U.S. for Ozone Pollution. Gross. The area also ranks 15th on the Short-Term Particle Pollution list.
