Seattle Public Utilities is now offering a limited number of free, filled sandbags to households or business owners in flood-prone areas in the Seattle area. If you’ve experienced, or come close to, flooding, you may consider using sandbags, which can help divert water and protect property from debris.
SPU is making up to 25 sandbags available to households or businesses at four locations listed below starting on Friday, November 6th, and Saturday, November 7th. Sandbags are heavy (they weigh about 40 pounds each), so be sure either you, or someone you bring with you, can lift, carry and load the sandbags into your vehicle.
