North Ogden City providing sandbags to prep for possible flooding
NORTH OGDEN, Utah– With higher-than-average snow totals this winter, spring runoff and flooding are now serious concerns in North Ogden and across the state.
To help direct early runoff and prevent flooding, North Ogden officials are temporarily providing residents with free sandbags.
Experts say it’s a good idea to have sandbags on hand before flooding starts. It’s also a good idea to clear out the snow from gutters and away from the foundation of your home to prevent damage from flooding.
North Ogden City residents can get their free sandbags at the public works office.
Although some prefilled bags are available, residents can also fill bags themselves to take home. Officials say it’s a good idea to bring your own shovel in case a lot of people show up to take advantage of the offer.
The North Ogden Public Works office is located at 165 East Lomond View Drive.
