Where to get your free sandbags to help mitigate flooding
SALT LAKE CITY– Utah’s snow totals have reached record highs this winter. With the impressive snowpack, some are concerned about where all that water will go as we head into warmer months.
Many communities are taking a proactive approach to being prepared for possible flooding.
Announcements have rolled in from many cities that want residents to know that free sandbags are available for pickup.
However, most cities are providing “stop and fill” stations. The fill stations will provide sand and bags but they recommend residents bring their own shovels.
Most cities said they allow residents to fill 20 to 25 bags. Here is a growing list of sandbag stations. For questions call your local public works office.
