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.
