This page last reviewed June 8, 2010

In May 2010, Siskiyou County STAGE agreed to pay $4,125 in penalties, $3,093.75 to the California Air Pollution Control Fund and $1,031.25 to the Peralta Community College District for violating air quality regulations.  An ARB investigation showed that Siskiyou County STAGE failed to properly self-inspect their diesel fleet in order to ensure the buses and transit vehicles met state smoke emission standards under the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) 13 CCR Section 2190 et seq. and also failed to meet the Fleet Rule for Transit Agencies – Urban Bus Requirements (UB), 13 CCR Section 2023.1 (e)(3)(A) for particulate matter (PM) reductions.  ARB documented these violations as they related to the PSIP and the UB requirements.  To settle this case Siskiyou County STAGE agreed to pay the $4,125 penalty and to comply with the PSIP, UB and all other applicable ARB regulations.
