Rainfall amounts from the anticipated "atmospheric river" events in March 2023 could be significant, which may potentially cause local flooding. City Staff has taken preemptive measures to mitigate and/or reduce the flooding potential where possible (i.e., drain cleaning, etc.) The City continues to clean the storm drains and drainage pipes throughout the year to minimize the potential for flooding.
Should you wish to make sandbags to protect private property, the City has sand available at the City Streets Yard located at 1220 Paso Robles Street (refer to the image included here).
Please make sure to bring a shovel and bags.
Empty sandbags are available for purchase at the following locations:
- Burt Industrial Supply 2125 Golden Hill Road 1-805-237-2471
- Lowe’s 2445 Golden Hill Road 1-805-602-9051
