Farrand Enterprises, Incorporated Case Settles for $2,300
In June 2014, FARRAND ENTERPRISES paid $2,300.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $1,725.00 went to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $575.00 went 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.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that FARRAND ENTERPRISES failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards as required by the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) and failed to timely report all required information for all vehicles in the fleet for which they elected to utilize the compliance options/credits/provisions of the Statewide Truck & Bus (STB) Regulation. ARB documented violations as they related to the PSIP and the STB Regulation. To settle the case, FARRAND ENTERPRISES agreed to the $2,300.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP, STB and other ARB programs.
