An order for sandbags will be delivered to the lower Kensington Library Parking Lot (north side) on the morning of January 4th. Demand for sandbags regionally has been excessively high, and our distributor can get them to us in the morning.
Additional Sandbag resources for Kensington Residents:
SANDBAGS FOR EL CERRITO AND KENSINGTON RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES: (From the El Cerrito City Website: https://www.el-cerrito.org/375/Flooding-Sandbags)
If you need sandbags to prevent flooding from the street into your driveway, garage, home or business (in preparation before a storm hits or after the storm has arrived), you can obtain a maximum of ten (10) bags per household or business per year. Please bring proof of address. The sand pile and bags are available for El Cerrito and Kensington residents/businesses only. You will need to fill the bags yourself. There is an enclosure just inside the gate of the El Cerrito Recycling Center (at 7501 Schmidt Lane). During the winter months, it is filled with sand, and empty bags are provided. Please check in at the Recycling Center front desk.
If the flooding on your property is not caused by high flows in the public right-of-way, residents and businesses should obtain sandbags from their local building supply yard, landscape supply company, or hardware store.
Please remember to share this information with neighbors and check on community members that need extra care.
