In April 2013, Garrett Concrete Coring & Sawing Inc. paid $3,500.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $2,625.00 went to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $875.00 went to the 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 Garrett Concrete Coring & Sawing Inc. 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, Garrett Concrete Coring & Sawing Inc. agreed to the $3,500.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and Emission Control Label (ECL) programs and the Statewide Truck and Bus and In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulations.
