This page last reviewed December 21, 2011
In July 2011, the San Diego County Water Authority agreed to pay $3,875.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $2,906.25 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $968.75 will go to the Palomar College Foundation.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that the San Diego County Water Authority 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) and Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP). To settle the case, the San Diego County Water Authority agreed to the $3,875.00 penalty and to comply with the Fleet Regulation for Public Agencies and Utilities and Periodic Smoke Inspection program, and other ARB programs.
