Foster Poultry Farms Case Settement
Foster Poultry Farms Case Settles for $10,125
Foster Poultry Farms will pay $10,125.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $10,125.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $7,594.00 will go to the School Bus Retrofit Project to retrofit school buses throughout California with diesel emission control strategies. This settlement was reached in May, 2016.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Foster Poultry Farms 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). To settle the case, Foster Poultry Farms agreed to the $10,125.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP and other ARB programs.
