Sandbag distribution sites


Valley Water offers free filled sandbags for residents of Santa Clara County. The sandbag sites listed below are managed by Valley Water and are open from late November through April each flood season. 

There are additional sandbag sites managed by various cities within Santa Clara County. These sites are stocked with either filled sandbags or sand and empty bags for self-filling and require you to bring your own shovel. Please bring assistance for loading heavy bags, if necessary. 

Be aware, some sites may require proof of residency.

During storm events, all of the sites may only be stocked with sand and empty bags. While shovels are provided at these sites, you may want to bring one with you just in case. Supplies may be limited.
