Immediately prior to applying the slurry, the Contractor shall clean the street surface and lip of
gutter joints of all loose material, silt spots, vegetation, and any other matter, which may
adversely affect the adherence of the slurry to the existing pavement.
The Contractor shall be responsible for sweeping all streets with a mechanical power broom
immediately prior to sealing. The Engineer may require particularly dirty streets to be flushed

Placing Technical Specification Page 54 (898 of 980 Wildomar City Council Agenda Packet for September 10, 2014)
The joint between the pavement and the PCC gutter shall be sealed with slurry seal.
A straight-line cut-off shall be obtained by laying down a strip of building paper or other
approved material. The Contractor shall remove such paper and any excess slurry after
application of the slurry. Edge limits of the slurry on both sides of the street shall be maintained
in a neat and uniform line.
Those are some good pics. This whole process has been a mess from my POV. I had take a few pics of weeds growing up through the new layer of slurry before the snows hit us. Also, I have to love all the debris that was left behind in the gutters… I wonder if it was ever properly cleaned up, if it washed away with the rains, or is still there… looks like I need to go for a walk again and see.
I will take a long walk later this summer to document many of the cracks returning because of the poor job done on the crack seal. There were so many changes done on the fly this city be luck if any of this work is still presentable in a year.
We have two large cracks that run completely across Woshka Lane which were improperly (or not at all) cleaned and sealed, which are already clearly visible and opening up. And we also have big blotches of sealer that spread into the gutter areas – so much for “both sides of the street shall be maintained
in a neat and uniform line.
Where was the city’s careful planning, quality control and the much needed oversight for this whole botched project? Where is the much needed additional clean-up and remedial or corrective work we should be able to expect?
I too have observed numerous cracks starting to form all over the Windsong Tract. The weeds growing up thru the NEW SLURRY SEAL are the most amazing but predicted sight to behold. But, who cares it’s only a half a million tax-payer dollars. As spring is coming I will be doing an update with photographic evidence of this fool hardly attempt to repair poorly constructed roads. Roads constructed under the County of Riverside’s leadership and dumped on a blind group of individuals that led the sheep to the slaughterhouse called cityhood.
