Customers can get sandbags for flood control every day of the week at the Stormwater Operations Center.

The satellite sandbag locations will not open this year, in the interest of minimizing employee exposure to COVID-19 and maximizing resources where they are needed most. In the event of a major flooding event, an emergency stormwater response team will set up sandbag pick-up stations in targeted areas.

Sandbags are free to residential customers for flood-control purposes only. The limit is 10 sandbags per visit. You will need to show a Texas ID or an El Paso Water bill to get sandbags. Persons who cannot lift heavy items should be accompanied by someone who can assist with loading and unloading the bags.
