In November 2014, McDonald’s USA, LLC (McDonald’s), CCK Builders, Inc.,(CCK), and Caplinger Construction, Inc.,(Caplinger) paid $9,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations.
State Law establishes the Asbestos National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants as Airborne Toxic Control Measure (Asbestos ATCM) enforceable by Air Resources Board (ARB). The Asbestos ATCM requires the owner(s) or operator(s) of demolition or renovation activities to provide written notification of the intention to demolish or renovate a regulated facility ten (10) working days before work begins.
An inspection by ARB showed that McDonald’s, CCK, and Caplinger failed to properly notify ARB before demolishing a commercial structure in Imperial County. To settle the case, McDonald’s, CCK, and Caplinger agreed to the $9,000.00 penalty.
