BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A new survey ranks Bakersfield and other communities like Fresno as the "most disadvantaged cities" in the state.
The survey looked at the percentage of people with asthma, quality of drinking water, air quality, pesticide contamination and proximity to toxic waste sites.
Fresno neighborhoods dominated the ranking, with Bakersfield also making the top 20.
The ranking released by the California Environmental Protection agency means those communities will get a special share of the state's cap-and-trade funds generated by penalties on companies that emit the most climate-changing pollution.
