The invisible valley: Study shows environmental disparities between East and West Coachella

Researchers at the University of California Davis completed a report on the relative environmental vulnerability of people living in different parts of the Coachella Valley.  The report includes a map showing the cumulative environmental health hazards of living in the Eastern Coachella Valley, and a demographic comparison between the eastern and western portions of the Coachella Valley.  A write up of the report, and interviews with the lead investigators, is on Coachella Unincorporated.
