With tomorrow’s forecasted rain, 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 , 28971 Goetz Road: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Menifee Fire Station 68, 26020 Wickerd Road: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Menifee Fire Station 76, 29950 Menifee Road: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Public Works Maintenance Operations Center (MOC), 27860 Bradley Road: 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.
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.
Make sure to follow the City of Menifee for additional tips on staying safe during the rainy season and let's all make sure to be prepared, Menifee!
