The forecasted warming trend of above freezing temperatures and along with rain in Wilsonville may lead to localized flooding as a result of the snow and ice melting over a short period of time and the potential for blocked storm drains.
To help prevent flooding the City provides residents free sand and sandbags for filling at the Community Garden, located at 7524 SW Schroeder Way, off of Wilsonville Road just east of Memorial Park. Residents need to bring their own shovels to fill the sandbags.
The City is encouraging residents to clear snow, ice and other debris from residential storm drains to prevent the potential for localized flooding or high water. To report problems with flooding or downed trees, the City’s Public Works 24-hour emergency line is toll-free 866-252-3614.
For more information about the free sandbags contact the City’s Public Works Department at 503-682-4092.
