Community of Pleasanton, those who have any sense of observation, probably came across a crow,raven, between the streets of Blacow and Kolln, off Valley Ave.,lying in the middle of the sidewalk,a few nights ago. Passed by while driving westbound and decided to drive around to provide proper location to whomever I called within the City. Although having confidence in my intuition, when I arrived home and looked through the local phonebook for a number to call, I decided to call the general number of Pleasanton and received no answer. Thank you for the article and information. City of Pleasanton was probably not the agency to call.

One thing left out of the article is for people to report algae pools and ponds to Alamada County.

Last year during the summer months, when my dog was alive, I used to walk her daily around the Ironwood Pool area. In doing so I would notice due to their watering system that there were puddles of water around some of the boulders in the area. I called the Mosquito Abatement Services Co. that takes care of this and reported it. They immediately came out and sprayed those areas with standing water. After doing so they phoned me to say they had finished and would checking the area again in a matter of weeks. With all the people using the swimming pool during the summer months, this could have been a real problem if people were to have gotten bitten by an infected mosquito's. The moral of the stay is, watch for any places where there is standing water.
