Public Works Makes Sand Bags Available

To help Alamedans prepare for upcoming storms, Public Works has opened a sandbag station on Alameda Point at Lexington Street and West Tower Avenue. The station will be open from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday until Dec. 15. 

If you are not able to pick up sandbags when the station is open, call Public Works at 747-7900 to receive instructions for a self-serve area. Please note that the sandbag station is closed during storms, as staff are occupied with storm-related service requests.  

Alameda residents can receive up to five free sandbags after showing proof of residency, such as an Alameda Municipal Power bill or current driver’s license with an Alameda address.
