• Lateral C-1 Storm Drain Project Pictorial

This project has been percolating for quite some time. It's been mentioned at least half a dozen times in this blog with the earliest reference going back to May 2014.

This isn't the type of project that will cause any traffic issues, so most people don't know it's under construction... even if they're driving by it.
General area of the project and pictures below.

It's just to the east of Palomar, south of Anne Sullivan Preschool, and mostly out of sight.

It's not hard to dig up information about this project, but I asked Public Works Director/City Engineer Dan York to give a thumbnail sketch in layman's terms about it.
What you're seeing right now is that they're building the 90" section of the pipe, closest to Palomar; and it will go all the way up towards Windsong Valley. It'll run north and south along the edge of Windsong Valley and pick up a couple of different drainage courses. Ultimately it will collect 615 cubic feet per second of water, which is a significant amount of water. This project, we're hopeful that everything will be complete before Thanksgiving.

Below are several images. 
The first is from last Summer, the rest were taken this week.

Another look at the pipe to give you an idea how big it is.
Here is a detail of the previous image for a better idea of it's size. 
If it ever rains again, it'll be interesting to see how the water flows with this thing in place. Hopefully straight down to the Murrieta Creek like it's supposed to, and not onto Palomar anymore.

The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, sticktoitiveness; third, common sense.

Wildomar Rap reminds you that sticktoitiveness has nothing to do with stepping on gum.

  1. Let's hope we never see it filled up with dirt like Prairie Rd. which is accumulating dirt once again.


Let's hear what you have to say... for other inquiries try the email listed under "view my complete profile" but if you want to discuss a blog topic, I'll only do it in this comment section, not by email.
