The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $3.77 million in grants to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District to replace more than 200 vehicles.
About $2.2 million will go toward a program to replace 105 heavy-duty diesel trucks in the Valley. The new trucks will be powered by 2018 or newer model-year engines. The funds will be combined with $11.56 million in matching funds from the air district and participating trucking fleets, according to an EPA news release.
Another $1.57 million will replace 100 diesel-powered farm tractors with new equipment with cleaner engineers. Those funds will be combined with $8.38 million from the air districts.
