These sites are opened around the clock and will close when storms season is over.  Refilling the locations will occur between 7 a.m., and 7 p.m.  During storms, more location may open depending on the severity.  Those extra sites may also close after a storm is over. 

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 your 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.
