City, County Sandbag Locations Updated for Ahead of Possible Storms

El Paso Water is urging customers to obtain sandbags ahead of potentially heavy rains this week, by visiting the updated sandbag distribution site list below.

While the Haskell R. Street Wastewater Plant site on Boone street has closed for the season, customers can still obtain sandbags at any of the other 4 locations throughout El Paso.

Customers in areas prone to flooding are encouraged to have sandbags on hand before most heavy rains begin. The limit is 10 bags per visit.

El Paso Water does not charge for sandbags. Persons who cannot lift heavy items should be accompanied by someone who can assist with loading and unloading the bags.

Additionally, El Paso County Public Works crews will be prepared for this week’s possible rain and flooding situations in County areas.

The County will be ready to dispatch up to 14 water trucks, a result of the Commissioners Court’s recent investment in stormwater management, to respond to any flooding or stormwater concerns. Additionally, County crews have filled over 6,000 sand bags for the storm and have delivered sandbags to the various Emergency Service District fire stations (listed below).

The sandbags will be available for pickup by residents 24/7 at the County Road & Bridge Warehouse facilities. Residents are urged to prepare accordingly.

To report flooding on County streets and roadways, residents may directly contact the County Public Works Hotline, 24/7 during a rain event, at (915) 875-8555 or via email at FloodAssist@EPCounty.com.

Residents are reminded to avoid attempting to cross running water on a roadway and to contact 911 in the event of an emergency.
