Seven terminal operators at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have reached a settlement in a lawsuit alleging the terminals were in violation of diesel emission standards, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Under the settlement reached with California Attorney General Kamala Harris, the terminals agreed to spend about $1 million each on cleanup projects and advertise warnings to the public about diesel emissions, the Associated Press reported.

The terminals will also pay more than $1 million to fund low-emission truck grants as part of the settlement, AP said.
