[ARCHIVED] Free Sand and Sandbags for Menifee Community


As the rainy season begins, the City of Menifee would like to remind residents that it has four self-serve sandbag sites for residents and businesses. When properly placed, sandbags may redirect water and debris to flow away from your property, which can protect structures.

Self-serve sandbag stations are open in the following locations:

Menifee Fire Station 5 

Menifee Fire Station 68 

Menifee Fire Station 76 

Public Works Maintenance Operations Center (MOC) 

28971 Goetz Road 

26020 Wickerd Road 

29950 Menifee Road 

27860 Bradley Road 

Menifee, CA 92587 

Menifee, CA 92584 

Menifee, CA 92584 

Menifee, CA 92586 

7 a.m. – 7 p.m.

7 a.m. – 7 p.m. 

M – Th: 6:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

F: 6:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. 

Residents, property owners, and business owners should bring their own gloves and shovels and be prepared to fill up to 10 sandbags, unless there is a bigger flooding issue, in which 50 sandbags per resident are allotted. Sandbags should only be filled halfway so that they are not too heavy to lift and can be stacked properly. Please note that sand is subject to availability and may run out leading up to major storms.

It is the responsibility of the property owners to protect their private property prior to storm events. In addition to obtaining sandbags at these locations, sandbags may also be purchased at local hardware stores and/or building supply stores. Some building supply stores will deliver filled sandbags with advanced notice.

To help the community prepare, here is a list of potentially life-saving tips for motorists and pedestrians during stormy weather and/or flooding.
