This page last reviewed April 5, 2012
In March 2012 Imperial Irrigation District agreed to pay $45,375.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $34,031.25 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $11,343.75 will go to the Palomar Community College Foundation.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Imperial Irrigation District failed to install legally required emission-reduction devices by applicable compliance dates. ARB documented violations as they related to the Fleet Regulation for Public Agencies and Utilities (PAU), Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP), and Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulation (ORDV). To settle the case, Imperial Irrigation District agreed to the $45,375.00 penalty and to comply with the Fleet Regulation for Public Agencies and Utilities and other ARB programs.
