This page last reviewed November 1st, 2013.

In October 2013 the City of Anaheim agreed to pay $6,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $4,500.00 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $1,500.00 will go to Peralta Colleges Foundation to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program. 

An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that the City of Anaheim failed to comply with the Fleet Rule for Public Agencies and Utilities by neglecting to install legally required emission-reduction devices by applicable compliance dates. ARB documented violations as they related to the Fleet Rule for Public Agencies and Utilities (PAU). To settle the case, City of Anaheim agreed to the $6,000.00 penalty and to comply with the PAU Program and other ARB programs.
