Sandbags

 

SandbagsDuring the winter, Vallejo Flood & Wastewater District supplies free sand and burlap bags to residents in the greater Vallejo area, and provides instruction in filling and stacking bags. Free sandbags are available at the District's sandbag station, located at 45 Solano Ave., west of Sonoma Blvd. The station is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The station is open mid-October through mid-April.

Follow instructions on the sign by the gate to enter. Sand and bags are free. You may wish to purchase plastic sheeting to put under the sandbags at your home. At the sandbag station, you'll find instructions on how to fill a sandbag and how to properly build a sandbag wall.

For more information, call (707) 644-8949 ext. 1702 during regular business hours.

After hours or on weekends, the sandbag station is opened if there is a high demand during a major storm. To find out if the sandbag station is open, you can call (707) 644-8949. The after-hours answering service will take your request and give it to an on-call staffer, who will call you back and let you know if the station is open.

Thank you, D.I. Aggregate!

D.I. Aggregate Management on Mare Island has generously donated sand to the District for our free sandbag program. The company provides sand to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and PG&E for large fill projects. Regional Manager Ron Peterson feels this is a perfect opportunity to assist our community and be a good neighbor. We are very appreciative of their generosity and support.
