This page last reviewed February 8, 2012

In December 2011, Thompco Inc. agreed to pay $1,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $750.00 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $250.00 will go to Peralta Community College District to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program. This settlement was reached on December 16, 2011. The payments were made in two installations with both checks received on December 7, 2011.

An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Thompco Inc. failed to comply with the In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicles Program (Off-Road) by not reporting and labeling all vehicles with engines subject to the regulation in its fleet. To settle the case, Thompco Inc. agreed to the $1,000.00 penalty and to comply with the Off-Road rule.
