Sandbags are intended solely for mitigating flood risk to primary residences, and should not be used for outbuildings, corrals, etc. This is especially important as sandbags are in very high demand and the supply needs to serve as many people as possible.
Residents are asked to bring their own shovels and/or buckets to help them make sandbags at all self-serve sandbag stations.
The District is unable to load sandbags into private vehicles with forklifts, etc. for liability and insurance reasons.
Residents whose homes are identified for flood mitigation and who are elderly or disabled and cannot secure assistance through family or friends should contact the Call Center at 928-679-8525 and request assistance.
Sandbagging volunteers are needed right now. Anyone interested in volunteering to assist with sandbag production and placement, including organizations – sports teams, scouting, church groups, and other volunteer organizations – please sign up to volunteer via United Way of Northern Arizona’s Volunteer Hub at United Way of Northern Arizona (UWNA) Volunteer Hub.
