Hennings Bros. Drilling Company Case Settlement
Hennings Bros. Drilling Company Case Settles for $3,000
An investigation by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) showed that Hennings Bros. Drilling Company (Hennings Bros) was in violation of the Truck and Bus Regulation (California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2025). The violations were first discovered through a “SMART Audits” data analysis and later confirmed during the investigation. Hennings Bros failed to bring seventeen vehicles into compliance with the engine model year compliance schedule (California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2025(g)).
The total penalty assessed in this case was $51,000.00, with a per unit penalty of $3,000.00.
Hennings Bros agreed to the conditions of the settlement including the total penalty payment going to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality, and submission of proof of compliance with the Truck and Bus Regulation within 60 days of the execution of Settlement Agreement. Hennings Bros and CARB will continue to execute a compliance plan in order to fully comply with the Truck and Bus Regulation.
