2019.5.3 Sandbagging Staff and Resident


With the rising levels of water in the springtime, it is recommend to keep the sandbags in place over the winter.  If you would like to dispose of your filled sandbags, residents can return filled sandbags to the DPW (52216 Sierra Drive) at anytime on the pallets placed in the sandbagging operation area.  


Before the waters rise…..Prepare! Move all items on the lowest level off the floor and up above the potential water depth. (2-3 feet) Video record or photograph your home and the contents for a possible insurance claim. Contact your insurance agent and ask about flooding. Un-plug electrical appliances not being used in the low areas. Obtain and fill sandbags.
