ValleyCrest Companies Settlement
$64,875 in Fines Paid by ValleyCrest Companies
In February 2008, ValleyCrest Companies agreed to pay $64,875 in penalties; $48,656 to the California Air Pollution Fund and $16,219 to the Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that ValleyCrest Companies 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, ValleyCrest Companies agreed to the $64,875 penalty and to comply with the PSI and other ARB programs.
