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.
