This page last reviewed August 5, 2011

In June 2011, Ameron International agreed to pay $1,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $750.00 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $250.00 will go to Peralta Community College District to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology program. An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Ameron International failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to PSIP. To settle the case, Ameron International agreed to the $1,000.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP, and other ARB programs.
