Gold Medal Transport Case Settles for $3,088
Gold Medal Transport paid $3,088.00in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $2,316.00 went to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $772.00 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. This settlement was reached in August 2016.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Gold Medal Transport failed to: (1) bring one of their Transport Refrigeration Units (TRU) into compliance with the applicable in-use performance standards, (2) meet the Engine Model Year Compliance Schedule as required by the Truck and Bus (TB) regulation. ARB documented violations as they related to the TRU Airborne Toxic Control Measure and the TB regulation. To settle the case, Gold Medal Transport agreed to the $3,088.00 penalty and to comply with the TRU, TB and other ARB programs.
