Gora Trucking Settlement
Gora Trucking Case Settles for $3,000
In July 2014, Gora Trucking agreed to pay $3000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $2,250.00 went to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $750.00 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 Gora Trucking failed to bring their heavy-duty diesel fleet in compliance with the applicable in-use performance standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Statewide Truck and Bus regulation (SWTB). To settle the case, Gora Trucking agreed to the $3,000.00 penalty and to comply with the SWTB and other ARB programs.
