Gresham sandbag station open


Just in time for this week's pre-Thanksgiving rain and windstorm, Gresham's free, fill-your-own sandbag station is open.

The station, located at the city's operations center at 2123 S.E. Hogan Road, is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sand, shovels and bags are provided for free to Gresham residents for home or private use only - namely to protect property from flooding or rain runoff.

Sandbags are not available for commercial/contractor consumption. Citizens are responsible for the sandbags after use; public works crews do not dispose or retrieve them. If rainwater on the street is creating a hazard or localized flooding, call the Operations Center at 503-618-2626.
