CJ Concrete Construction, Inc. Case Settles for $55,400
In February 2014, CJ Concrete Construction, Inc. agreed to pay $55,400.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $41,550.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $13,850.00 will go to Peralta Colleges Foundation to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology program.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that CJ Concrete Construction, Inc. failed to: (1) properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards and; (2) meet the requirements of the Statewide Truck and Bus regulation engine model year compliance schedule for three vehicles in the fleet. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP), the Emission Control Label (ECL) Program and the Statewide Truck and Bus regulation. To settle the case, CJ Concrete Construction, Inc. agreed to the $55,400.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP, the ECL Program, the Statewide Truck and Bus regulation and other ARB programs.
