Starting Thursday, the center will be open to those business and property owners from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays.
Through this weekend, appointments will not be required. Appointments will be required starting Monday. People can make an appointment to pick up erosion control materials by calling the County’s Stormwater hotline at (888) 846-0800.
In addition to the free sandbags, fiber rolls and stakes, people can get brochures showing how to properly install the items so that rains don’t damage properties by washing people’s soil away.
County Department of Public Works staff will also be at the center to advise people about how to protect their properties, homes, garages, sheds and other structures.
Staff will also be able to go to people’s properties to visually inspect and offer information about the best practices to protect structures.
