During the rainy season, fill-them-yourself, 24/7 sandbag stations are set up for Lafayette property owners at the following two (2) locations:
- Corner of Mt Diablo Boulevard at Village Center (across from the Veteran’s Memorial Building)
- Corner of Camino Diablo and Loveland (west of the public works corporation yard).
To insure sufficient sand and bags are available, please only take what you need. If the station needs supplies, notify Public Works at 925-934-3908. (The station is re-stocked during normal business hours.) Sandbags can also be obtained from local home improvement or construction material stores for a nominal fee.
Residents and businesses can help minimize drainage issues, and even flooding, by raking up leaves and debris in yards and along their property and properly disposing of them in the greenwaste container. (Remember not to blow or rake leaves into the street, gutters, ditches, tributaries, or creeks – this can contribute to flooding!)
