SALT LAKE CITY — In a settlement reached with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Chevron has agreed to pay a nearly $400,000 penalty for alleged violations of the Clean Air Act at its Salt Lake refinery.

In an announcement Wednesday afternoon, the EPA said it is also requiring Chevron to overhaul and install pollution controls on three engines at the refinery to mitigate the effects of past excess emissions by reducing nitrogen oxide emissions by an estimated 50 tons yearly, according to an EPA press release.

Chevron will also spend $100,000 to purchase four compressed natural gas school buses for the Jordan School District.
