Cummins Cal Pacific LLC Settlement
Cummins Cal Pacific LLC Case Settles for $24,000
Cummins Cal Pacific LLC paid $24,000 in penalties ($18,000 to the California Air Pollution Control Fund and $6,000 to the California Pollution Control Financing Authority to guarantee loans to off-road vehicle fleets that need to buy exhaust retrofits to comply with the in-use off-road diesel vehicle regulation), for violating air quality regulations. This settlement was reached in January 2009. An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Cummins Cal Pacific LLC failed to comply with the California Vehicle Code (VC) Section 27156 by removing Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) aftertreatment devices. Cummins Cal Pacific LLC also failed to comply with the terms and conditions specified in the applicable Executive Order (EO) by installing Verified Diesel Emission Control Strategies in non-verified configurations. To settle the case, Cummins Cal Pacific LLC agreed to the $24,000 penalty and to comply with the VC Section 27156 and the applicable EO.
