Pleasanton opens sandbag stations as rainy season starts

Free sandbags available to aid in flood prevention

With the city finally seeing some of that winter rain, Pleasanton officials have opened three sandbag stations in anticipation of more storms.

The stations provide free sandbags to help prevent flooding.

The stations are located at the city's Operation Services Center, 3333 Busch Road, the Senior Center, 5353 Sunol Blvd. and at the offices of the Ken Mercer Sports and Recreation Community Park, 5800 Parkside Dr.

Hours of operation are Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Residents must bring a shovel.

"We're all crossing our fingers for enough rain to help us recover from this historic drought," said Kathleen Yurchak, Interim Director for Operations Services in Pleasanton. "But we also want everyone to be properly prepared by having not just one, but three sandbag stations available."
