Crews from the city's Parks Maintenance and Operations Services Departments got an early start yesterday on cleaning debris scattered throughout the city as a result of Tuesday's storm.
A rain gauge at the city's Operations Service Center on Busch Road recorded that 3.95 inches of rain fell in Pleasanton, according to city spokeswoman Joanne Hall.
Crews responded to 54 calls during the height of the storm on Tuesday, half of which were for area flooding and another half related to trees or tree limbs down, Hall said. The areas hardest hit areas by flooding were the stretch of Bernal at Valley Avenue opposite the fairgrounds as well as parts of Sycamore Road.
Sandbags were made available throughout the day to residents and businesses. City crews worked continually to fill bags totaling seven pallets worth, or 792 sandbags.
Crews also responded to various leaks in all major city buildings, with the largest concerns at the Pleasanton Senior Center and Fire Station No. 2, which is located on Stoneridge Mall Road.
