The rainy season has begun…

And it’s time for the 4th annual Sandbag Saturday. If you are a San Francisco resident and have a business or residence here in San Francisco, you can pick up free sandbags tomorrow Saturday October 20th from 11am- 1:00 pm. There will also be flood prevention information available. Bring proof of residency!

On October 20th, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and Department of Public Works will kick off the 4th annual “Sandbag Saturday” to raise flood prevention awareness and provide free sandbags to San Francisco residents. Introduced in 2004, “Sandbag Saturday” events have successfully distributed more than 6,000 sandbags. Sandbags can provide a useful barrier for diverting rain and street runoff away from homes and businesses in low-lying areas and below-grade properties.

Location:
DPW’s Corporation Yard on 2323 Cesar Chavez Street
(enter from Marin Street at Kansas Street)

Date:
Saturday October 20th, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
