El Paso Water opens seasonal sandbag distribution sites

El Paso Water customers may get sandbags seven days a week from June 26 through the end of September. The seasonal sites will be open in the west, central, east and Mission Valley areas, and hours will be extended at the Stormwater Operations Center, which is open throughout the year.

Sandbags are available for flood control purposes only and limited to 10 sandbags per visit. Customers in flood-prone areas are encouraged to have sandbags on hand before the heavy rains begin.

Persons who have difficulty lifting heavy items are encouraged to come with someone who can assist with loading and unloading the bags.
