COCA-COLA BOTTLING COMPANY CASE SETTLES FOR $528,500

The Coca-Cola Bottling Company (Coca-Cola) has paid $528,500 in penalties - $132,125 to the Peralta Community College District, and $396,375 to the California Air Pollution Fund, for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that Coca-Cola 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). To settle the case, Coca-Cola agreed to the $528,500 penalty and to comply with the PSI Program.
