Moreno Valley Utility Reduces Lighting Costs for Target Superstore
Moreno Valley's Target Superstore recently completed a major lighting retrofit project. This lighting project will provide energy savings of over 130,000 kilowatts per year, which translates to over $20,000 in annual savings on the store’s energy bill. 

The Moreno Valley Utility (MVU) provided over $12,000 in rebates to help the Target Superstore reduce energy usage and costs. Reducing commercial energy consumption is one more way that the City of Moreno Valley helps safeguard the environment.

This special retrofit project will also help to reduce Target Superstore's annual lighting maintenance costs. As part of Moreno Valley's concierge approach to business, MVU seeks out opportunities to assist local businesses. When businesses thrive in Moreno Valley, the entire community benefits.

Heacock Channel Project Reaches Groundbreaking Milestone
The Heacock Channel Project has reached its groundbreaking milestone.

The City of Moreno Valley is partnering with other agencies to improve to the existing earthen Channel to reduce flooding on residential, commercial, federal, public and privately owned properties.

The joint venture includes the March Joint Powers Authority, March Air Reserve Base and the Riverside County Flood Control and Water Conservation District.

The project includes construction of a fully concrete-lined channel from Cactus Avenue to the Perris Valley Storm Drain Lateral A Bridge. This will create improvements over a two-mile portion of the Heacock Channel. 
The Riverside County Flood Control and Water Conservation District awarded the project construction contract to Sukut Construction, LLC in September 2017.

Construction will begin in November and the project is expected to take approximately one year to complete.
