Sandbag Information

Last Updated: 2/27/2023 9:22 AM

County Branch Center, Orangevale Community Center, Point Pleasant, Westside Park, and Wilton Fire Department sandbag sites are now open.

If your property has a history of flooding or recurring standing water each year (such as water building up at the garage or back patio for example), you are encouraged to get sandbags in advance of the rainy season and have them on hand throughout the winter. Sandbags and sand are available, inexpensively, at most hardware and home improvement stores.

Sacramento County's sandbag sites are self-serve.  Bags and sand are available at each location, but you must bring you​r own shovel. Sites not operated by the County of Sacramento are intended for use by residents of the jurisdiction operating the site. For example, the sandbag sites operated by the City of Citrus Heights are intended for use by the residents of Citrus Heights, etc.

Sandbag Site Restocking Hours 7 AM – 4 PM Monday through Friday.​
