EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Officials with EPWater announced Thursday that the last day to pick up sandbags at the satellite distribution sites will be this Friday Oct. 15.

These seasonal satellite distribution sites will re-open next summer.

The Stormwater Operations Center, located at 4801 Fred Wilson Ave., will remain open throughout the year. Customers can get sandbags for flood control Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Residential customers in areas prone to flooding are encouraged to have sandbags on hand before heavy rains begin. The limit is 10 bags per visit.
