From the City of Pleasanton:
With the rainy season upon us, the City of Pleasanton reminds local residents and businesses that free sandbags are available to those concerned about flooding.
Residents can pick up free sandbags at the City of Pleasanton Service Center, located at 3333 Busch Road in Pleasanton. The sandbags can be picked up at anytime, and are located in the parking lot under a brown tarp.
The sandbags are for Pleasanton residents only and are not available to contractors seeking sandbags for work sites. City crews prepare in advance of the rainy season to clear culverts and drains, and residents are encouraged to clear leaves from neighborhood drains as a part of this effort. Operations Services crews spend six weeks implementing an annual leaf pick-up program in advance of the rainy season.
Those who see flooded areas should call the Operations Services Department between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at (925) 931-5500. Flooding should be reported to the Police Department at (925) 931-5100 on weekends, holidays and during the regular work week, Monday through Friday, between 3:30 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.
