The river had a measured height of 18.92 feet by the USGS at 10:30 a.m. Compare that to the 6.19 feet it was measured at back on Feb. 4. The Pleasanton River Park was closed on Friday due to the extreme flooding. The water receded the next day and the Pleasanton River Park opened back up to the public.
