Valley Environmental Services Settlement
Valley Environmental Services Settles for $15,000
An Imperial County trash hauling company has agreed to pay $15,000 in penalties, both from violating air quality regulations.
An investigation by the ARB showed that Valley Environmental Services (VES) of Imperial California, 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 (PSI). The ARB presented their investigation results to both the California District Attorney's Association and the District Attorney's Office of Imperial County. To settle the case, VES agreed to the $15,000 penalty and to comply with the PSI Program.
