El Paso Water's seasonal sandbag distribution is underway.

The arrival of El Paso's Monsoon season means an increase in thunderstorm activity, and although we don't get much rain here in the desert, often times when we do get it, we get a lot of it at once.

If you live in an area that tends to flood, sandbags are one way to keep the water out of your home or property. Now is the time to proactively prepare for future storm events, so get your free sandbags from El Paso Water before the heavy rains begin.

Sandbags are available at the five locations listed below seven days a week through September 30. There is a limit of 15 bags per visit.
