The City of Moreno Valley has gotten itself into a bit of trouble over its handling of the Cactus Avenue Widening Project, and the contaminant runoffs from Highland Fairview’s Aquabella project site.
On February 19, 2013 the City of Moreno Valley was given a notice of violation of their Construction Activities General Permit by the California Water Boards, Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board.
The City’s lack of proper controls and the following of the requirements set forth in the Construction Activities General Permit caused damage to the Moreno Valley Ranches private lake adjacent to the Aquabella project site, which resulted in the death of hundreds of fish and the lake becoming a waste-bed of soil and debris.
