Penhall Company Case Settlement
Penhall Company Case Settles for $9,750
Penhall Company will pay $9,750 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $9,750 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality. This settlement was reached in November 2017.
An investigation by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) showed that Penhall Company failed to perform annual vehicle smoke opacity testing and retain records on all applicable trucks in their diesel fleet. CARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) as codified in California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2180-2194 (13 CCR § 2180-2194). To settle the case, Penhall Company agreed to the $9,750 penalty and to comply with PSIP and other CARB programs.
