I just have my suspicions, is all

I'm looking for a relatively fine-grained source of health and environmental data for Contra Costa County, CA. County-by-county is no good, and even city-by-city isn't that great. I'd like to see it by block if possible (zip code would be useful). Anything that fine-grained would be fine: cancer rates, mortality rates, air quality, etc.

The specific area I'm looking in is east Contra Costa County. It has a lot of stuff going on like oil refineries, former military testing ranges, and so on. I'm trying to figure out where to live (more on this later, even though I know East CoCoCo isn't really MeFi-heavy ground) and the difference between, say, northern Martinez and southern Martinez could be significant.
So far I haven't found anything useful from the state, county, or EPA, and the one site that did look promising doesn't function anymore because it hasn't been updated in years.
If you have any suggestions, I'd appreciate it! Thanks.
P. S. I have no idea what category to put this in.
