Wilbur-Ellis Company Settlement
$4,500 in Fines Paid by Wilbur-Ellis Company
In April, 2008, the Wilbur-Ellis Company (Wilbur-Ellis) agreed to pay $4,500 in penalties; $3,375 to the California Air Pollution Fund and $1,125 to the Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that Wilbur-Ellis 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). To settle the case, Wilbur-Ellis agreed to the $4,500 penalty and to comply with the PSI and other ARB programs.
