DEATH IS IMMINENT

Imagine my surprise when visiting Windsong Park today after being told it survived the recent downpour quite well.
The surprise was an enormous amount of dirt in the roadway and signs that the water had backed up at the drains overflowing the curbs.

This street is normally quite clean. Today it is filthy

At this point I took a trip thru another rabbit hole provide by one of Wildomar’s industrious little beavers that like to play in the creek (I trespassed onto city property) only to find the source of all this mayhem.

Once again the old farts grapper is 32" long. This pipe is a 60 inch pipe that is 50% occluded

Drainage for the Tot-Lot appears to be 100% pugged up and water is still oozing out of the line days later.

With the recent flooding that occurred at Elsinore High School being blamed by some on a failed city drainage system one can’t help wonder if that drainage line wasn’t in the same condition. You say no way. Guess what there are numerous examples of this same condition throughout the City of Wildomar.
More examples that are easy to find are at the new parkland on the eastside.

These are only a very few places that are easily seen. Lurking throughout a city with no plan are many areas just like this waiting to reek havoc on the daily lives of Wildomar Citizens.
Time will tell if the local school district is next line to file what some will call a frivolous lawsuit to recover damages to high school campus.
