Sand bags available for flood preparation

Residents encouraged to use bags to prevent or control flooding

With the weekend forecast calling for rain and an uncertain winter rain forecast ahead, the town of Danville is preparing for potentially heavy rainfall totals. Residents can obtain sand and bags to assist in flood prevention and control efforts.

Maintenance Services Manager Jed Johnson said that just as in prior years, the materials will be made available at the town service center, (1000 Sherburne Hills Road). Johnson asked that residents take a maximum of 20 sand bags so there is enough for everyone.

Maintenance staff will monitor the site and will replenish the supplies as needed. The sand will remain available through the winter.

For more information, contact Maintenance Services Manager Jed Johnson at 314-3450 or jjohnson@danville.ca.gov.
