The City of South Lake Tahoe would like to remind residents that sand bags are available at no cost year round.  The sand lot is located at the City’s Public Works Yard located at 1160 Rufus Allen Blvd., which is next to Campground by the Lake.  

To pick-up your sand bags, proceed through the gate at 1160 Rufus Allen Blvd. and drive to the back of the lot.  At the back of the lot is a large sand mound, shovels and bags.  Residents fill their own bags and transport back to their own residence.  Please leave the shovels so that other residents may use and try to limit the number of bags to 10 per visit. 

Access to sand bags is available during normal business hours, Monday-Friday 7:30am-4pm.
