Air Quality Violations (Richmond, CA)

Chevron agreed to pay the Bay Area Air Quality Management District $300,000 in fines for failing to meet air quality standards at its Richmond, California refinery. The refinery accumulated 52 violations from 1998 until May 2001, some of which contributed to a fiery explosion that sent hundreds of people to the hospital complaining of breathing difficulty and eye irritation. Chevron received violation notices for organic emission leaks from refinery valves, excess emissions from waste water separators, and excessive smoke.
