Pacific sandbagging party set for Saturday
October 11, 2011 · 2:40 PM
Volunteers will reinforce and make repairs to the sandbag flood wall located behind the White River Estates homes on the Pierce County Line in Pacific on Saturday morning.
Volunteers can meet at 9 a.m. along the east end of White River Drive.
Two years ago, volunteers placed more than 45,000 sandbags along the county line to prevent floodwater.
"Although most of these bags are still in decent shape, new plastic and replacement of some bags must be done," said Mayor Richard Hildreth. "We will also close off a section where bags were moved to gain access to the wetlands area."
