Dec 14, 2015 2:20 PM by News Staff

With this year's El Nino is staying unusually strong, and forecasters saying it's still expected to bring a wet winter, the City of Chico is offering residents a chance to stay ahead of the storms.

Starting next month, the city will be offering free sand at the City’s Corporation Yard at 901 Fir St., just south of 9th Street and Highway 32.

Residents should bring their own bags, which can be purchased at hardware, landscaping and home improvement stores.

The city is also asking for the public’s help in preventing flooding by keeping leaf piles and other debris away curbs and storm drains.
