Summer sandbag distribution schedule begins July 5

Sites to provide sandbags for emergency flood control

Residential customers can pick up sandbags for flood control any day of the week beginning Tuesday, July 5 through September 30. The summer distribution sites will reopen in three areas of El Paso, including the centrally located Stormwater Operations Center, which is also open throughout the year.

El Paso Water encourages residential customers who live in areas prone to flooding to have sandbags on hand before most heavy rains begin. The limit is 10 bags per visit. Residential customers will need to show a Texas ID or an EPWater bill to get sandbags.

The utility 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.

In observance of Independence Day, the Stormwater Operations Center will be closed on Monday, July 4.
