The City of Turlock provides several proactive and reactive methods of dealing with storm-related problems such as flooding, water storage and contingency planning.
During storm events, many problems occur. Some of these problems are merely inconveniences while others pose serious threats to safety or property. 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.
If you have a storm related problem, you can contact Municipal Services at 668-5590. To report problems after normal business hours or on holidays, call Police Services at 668-1200.
As a service to citizens, the City of Turlock Municipal Services Department operates a sandbag pickup operation. Turlock residents can pick-up sandbags for use during storm events to prevent damage and flooding on their property, however, the City of Turlock does not deliver sandbags to customer’s homes. There is no charge for the sandbags, but disposal becomes the responsibility of the citizen. Sandbags can be picked up at 901 S. Walnut Rd., Turlock. Pick-up is available between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Hours may be extended and additional sand bag pickup locations may be added if demand is high.

WATER CONSERVATION TIP #31
Consider installing an instant water heater on your kitchen sink so you don't have to let the water run while it heats up. This will reduce heating costs for your household.
