The town of Danville has opened its sandbag station, a public resource set up annually to help residents prepare for rainy conditions and cut down on potential flood damage.
The station which offers sand, bags and a shovel is located in the parking lot of the Danville Maintenance Services Center at 1000 Sherburne Hills Road, behind the main post office on Camino Tassajara.
Town officials have instituted a limit of 20 bags per resident for this season. They ask users to cover the sand pile with the tarp, close the sandbag container and leave the shovel in place when finished at the station.
The town will provide sand and sandbags for its residents until the threat of rain dissipates in the spring.
