Systems Services of America Settlement
Systems Services of America Case Settles for $2,249.00
In August 2012, Systems Services of America, Inc. paid $2,249.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $1,687.00 went to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $562.00 went to the Peralta Community College District to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology program. An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Systems Services of America, Inc. failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) regulation. To settle the case, Systems Services of America, Inc. agreed to the $2,249.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and other ARB programs.
