Sandbags Available for Storm Preparations


Sandbags are available to residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the parking lot adjacent to the Water and Wastewater Resources Department at 153 Lake Merced Blvd. Residents are limited to 10 sandbags each free of charge, while supplies last. When filling sandbags, fill them only half way, so they are not too heavy to lift and will stack properly. 

Sandbags are also available at the Public Works Corp Yard located at 798 Niantic Ave. Look for the bags near the garages. The corp yard is open 7am to 3:30pm, weekdays only.
