Empty sandbags, sand available in preparation for rainy season

Sand available at Paso Robles City Streets Yard

– Rainfall amounts from anticipated winter storms could be significant, which may potentially cause local flooding. Paso Robles City Staff has taken preemptive measures to mitigate and/or reduce the flooding potential where possible (i.e., drain cleaning, etc.). The city continues to clean the storm drains and drainage pipes throughout the year to minimize the potential for flooding.

Should members of the public wish to make sandbags to protect private property, the city has sand available at the City Streets Yard located at 1220 Paso Robles Street (refer to the graphic above). Those picking up sand should be sure to bring a shovel.

Empty sandbags are available for purchase at the following locations:

  • Lowe’s 2445 Golden Hill Road 1-805-602-9051
