Prepare for Wet Weather

March 5, 2016

With El Nino looming, our Maintenance Service Department has spent the past few months working diligently to prevent any localized flooding, fallen trees and other road hazards by cleaning vital drainage inlets and City trees all over town.

If you do experience localized flooding, see a downed tree, or other storm hazard here is some helpful tips and information:

  • Sandbags continue to be available for Hayward and Fairview residents only (with valid ID Indicating proof of residency) and can be picked up in front of the City’s corporation yard at 24505 Soto Rd; we ask that each resident take no more than (12) bags. The supply of bags is constantly monitored and replenished based on need.
  • A sandbag station has also been created in front of the Animal Control building at 16 Barnes Ct. (at Soto Rd.) Maintenance Services has stocked the station with sand, shovels and bags for instances in which we have a high demand in a small window of time.
  • For any drainage or flooding related issues residents are encouraged to contact the Streets Division at (510) 881-7745.
  • For incidents of downed trees and limbs, residents can contact the Landscape Division at (510) 583- 8906.

Residents are encouraged to contact HPD dispatch at (510) 293-7000 to report incidents of after-hours flooding or any tree related emergencies. Crews are on standby and ready to respond 24 hours a day. For serious emergencies, such as downed power lines, please call 911.
