California Watch has created an audio slideshow from its reporting on the problems faced by poor, unincorporated communities in California. From the intro to the piece…

Roughly 1.8 million people live in low-income unincorporated communities in California. These communities are outside of recognized city boundaries and therefore lack many public services, including sewer systems and clean water. California Watch reporter Bernice Yeung visited several of these communities across the state and spoke to residents about the challenges they face.
