If you believe your home is subject to flooding, we encourage residents to prepare their homes ahead of time with commercially available options. 

In the event, the National Weather Service has forecast severe flooding in Placer County, sand and sandbags may be available from government sources for residents' use to protect their house and property. 

Please follow any posted signage noting limitations or availability. Phone numbers are listed to check availability. 

***If you live within city limits, please contact your city first for information about sand and sandbags.***
