Recent storms are a good reminder to prepare now for rains and possible flooding. The Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) has provided the following infographic to help residents prepare for winter storms. Additional information is provided on the SCVWD website.
In addition, sand and sandbags are available just east of the entrance to the Gilroy Corporation Yard at 613 Old Gilroy Street. Residents should bring a shovel and friend to help with holding the bag. Tips and tricks for filling and using sandbags along with additional sandbag locations can be found on the water district website.
