Sandbags - CopyMarch 9, 2023

Last year there wasn’t enough water and now there might be too much!  With the weather forecasts we are receiving and spring being just around the corner, there is a potential for flooding.  If you are concerned about flooding or are in an area that has flooded in the past, we encourage you to do what you can to take care of your property.  Bags and sand are available for residents to fill their own sandbags at the following locations:

    • Dow James Park Parking Lot, 438 W 400 N
    • Elton Park Parking Lot, 491 Birch St.
    • Tooele County Location, 505 W 900 S
    • Park and Ride Parking Lot, 2400 North SR-36

Please bring your own shovels, funnels, and vehicles for hauling away your sandbags.  We request you only take what you need.  There are message boards at those locations directing you to the location.  Please note that the fill station at the City Shops is not available at this time.

Huge shout out to Geneva Rock for donating sand!  Thank you!

We also want to thank Tooele County for their efforts to help in our flood mitigation efforts!

If your group would like to fill sandbags as a service project, please contact Nick Wall at nickw@tooelecity.org at 435.843.2213.
