El Paso Water begins Summer Sandbag Distribution

While temperatures are in the triple digits and clouds and downpours are few and far between, El Paso Water’s free sandbag distributino is under way. Customers can get sandbags for flood control seven days a week beginning Monday, July 11.

The seasonal distribution sites will reopen in the Mission Valley, west, central and east areas of El Paso, and hours will be extended at the Stormwater Operations Center, which is open throughout the year.

Customers in areas prone to flooding are encouraged to have sandbags on hand before the heavy rains begin. The limit is 15 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.
