Preparation Checklist for Storm Safety:
To report flooding, fallen trees/limbs and street hazards please contact the City of Woodland Public Works Department:
For medical or public safety emergencies:
Contact PG&E to report power outages and downed power lines:
If you have a stormdrain inlet/grate near your home, one of the best ways to help avoid localized flooding is to keep it clear of leaves and debris. To remove leaves and debris away from grates, take a rake or shovel and drag the debris sideways away from the grate. Do not leave the leaves or debris in the gutter or near the grate as this will cause the debris to be washed right back onto the grate. Always use proper safety precautions! If you are going to step off of the sidewalk to clean grates, be sure to look for oncoming traffic and other pedestrians.
Sand will be available for bagging at the following locations:
Please come prepared with your own shovel and bags.
