The Moreno Valley Police Department's School Resource Unit would like to remind Moreno Valley's youth that school attendance is an important part of their education. We would also like to take this opportunity to remind all the citizens of Moreno Valley that entering Poorman's Reservoir is a violation of Moreno Valley Municipal Code section 11.04.090. Poorman's Reservoir is considered dangerous due to the unstable ground, overgrown vegetation and many different types of wildlife living within the reservoir.
