Storms on the way, sandbags available!

Local meteorologists are forecasting northern California storms during the next week.

In the event the National Weather Service issues flood warnings, empty sandbags are available this week, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Fairfield's Public Works Corporation Yard, 420 Gregory Street. There is a 10-bag limit.

Sand is available at two locations: the corner of Pittman and Cordelia Roads and the southeast corner of Allan Witt Park off Woolner Avenue. Bring your own shovels; these sandbagging locations are “self-serve.”

To report localized flooding, please contact the Public Works Operations Division Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at (707) 428-7407. On weekends and after hours, report flooding to Police Dispatch at (707) 428-7300.
