2011 Central Fence Company agreed to pay $11,000 in penalties; $8,250 to the California Air Pollution Control Fund and $2,750 to Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations.

An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Central Fence Company 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, Central Fence Company agreed to the $11,000 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and other ARB programs.
