This page last reviewed September 25th, 2013.

In September/2013, PACIFIC GREEN TRUCKING paid $31,800.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $23,850.00 went to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $7,950.00 went to the 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 PACIFIC GREEN TRUCKING violated the Drayage Truck Regulation by dispatching noncompliant trucks to railroads and 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) and the Drayage Truck regulation. To settle the case, PACIFIC GREEN TRUCKING agreed to the $31,800.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP Program and Drayage Truck Regulation.
