Monsoon ready: Free sandbags available for Oro Valley residents

Published on May 26, 2020

Storm approaching Oro Valley

Sometimes when it rains, it pours. Oro Valley residents, it’s that time of year. Beginning Monday, June 15, the Town of Oro Valley will provide free sandbags to residents who may need to protect areas of their homes from storm runoff during monsoon.

The Oro Valley Stormwater Utility continues to be proactive in managing washes and addressing potential flood issues and is proud to offer this service to Oro Valley residents.

Sandbags can be picked up beginning Monday June 15, through the duration of the 2020 monsoon. Due to a limited number of supplies, only Town of Oro Valley residents are eligible, and there is a limit of 10 sandbags per vehicle.

Sandbags are self-service; you will need to bag and load your own sand.

Pickup Location
Naranja Park (810 W. Naranja Drive)
Follow the signs to the area known as the “Christmas tree recycling lot,” just north of the archery range.

Residents who require assistance may make an appointment with Town Staff to pick up pre-bagged sand at a designated time. To book your appointment, or for any questions, please contact Constituent Services Coordinator Jessica Hynd at 520-229-4711 or by email at
