As a service to Turlock citizens, the City operates a sandbag pickup operation.
Citizens can pickup sandbags for use during storm events to prevent damage and flooding on their property, however the City does not deliver sandbags. If flooding occurs on City streets, you may clean debris from the grating but please DO NOT remove storm grates or manhole covers, as doing so will create safety and security problems.
Sandbags can be picked up at the City’s Water Quality Control Facility at 901 S. Walnut Road, Turlock. Pick‐up times are between the hours of 8:00AM and 4:00PM Monday‐Friday, but may be extended during storm events when there is a high demand. There is no charge for the sandbags, but disposal becomes the responsibility of the citizen.
During storm events, many problems occur. Some of these problems are merely inconveniences while others pose serious threats to safety or property. The City provides a mechanism for addressing storm related problems. If you require assistance, you can contact Municipal Services at 668‐5590.
To report problems after normal business hours or on holidays, please call Police Services at 668‐1200.
