Regretfully, the City's stock of burlap sandbags has been exhausted. The City is attempting to procure more bags and will post an update once new stock is available. For the time being, the remaining sand is still located outside the Public Works Dept gates at 14200 Chapman Road and can be accessed any time of day. Residents who are able to provide their own bags may fill up to ten (10) bags per household while the sand supply lasts.
