$161,750 in Fines Paid by AT&T
AT&T has paid $161,750 in penalties ($121,312.50 to the California Air Pollution Fund, and $40,437.50 to the Peralta Community College District for participating CCDET colleges), for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that AT&T failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSI). To settle the case, AT&T agreed to the $161,750 penalty and to comply with the PSI and Reflash Programs.
