Asplundh Construction Settlement
Asplundh Construction Case Settles for $4,500
In January 2009, Asplundh Construction Corporation (Asplundh) agreed to pay $4,500.00 in penalties; $3,375.00 to the California Air Pollution Fund, $562.50 to the Peralta Community College District, and $562.50 to the California Pollution Control Financing Authority for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that Asplundh failed to properly self-inspect its diesel truck to assure it met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP). To settle the case, Asplundh agreed to the $4,500.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and other ARB programs.
