Shalimar, Inc. Settlement
Shalimar, Inc. Case Settles for $12,000
In March 2015, Shalimar, Inc. paid $12,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $9,000.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $3,000.00 will go 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 Shalimar, Inc. failed to bring two of their diesel buses into compliance with the Truck and Bus Regulation model year compliance schedule. ARB documented violations as they related to the Truck and Bus Regulation. To settle the case, Shalimar, Inc. agreed to the $12,000.00 penalty and to comply with the Truck and Bus Regulation and other ARB programs.
