BC Rincon Construction, Inc. Case Settles for $24,500
BC Rincon Construction Inc. will pay $24,500.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $18,375.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $6,125.00 will go to the Peralta Colleges Foundation to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program. This settlement was reached in April, 2016.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that BC Rincon Construction Inc. failed to bring 6 of their diesel trucks into compliance with the applicable in-use performance standards and 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 (PSIP), the Truck and Bus (TB) Regulation and the Off-Road Diesel Vehicle (ORDV) Regulation. To settle the case, BC Rincon Construction Inc. agreed to the $24,500.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP, TB and ORDV programs.
