Tips on how to properly fill and stack your sandbags

• Fill bags one-half to two-thirds of the way full

• Over-filled bags will result in a leaky sandbag wall

• Stack sandbags so that the seams between the bags are staggered

• Tuck the top of each bag under to ensure that that bag is sealed by its own weight

This self-serve sandbag site will remain open until weather conditions begin to deteriorate.
