Storm approaching Oro Valley

ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (June 15, 2023) – June 15 marks the official start of monsoon season, and the Town of Oro Valley wants to make sure residents are monsoon ready! Beginning today, June 15, the Town will provide free sandbags to residents who may need to protect areas of their home and property from monsoon storm runoff.

This year, the sandbag pickup has moved to a new location, 9451 N. Egleston Drive, which is behind the fields at James D. Kriegh Park (please see map below for details). Sandbags can be picked up now through September 30, or while supplies last. Due to a limited number of supplies, only Town of Oro Valley residents are eligible for up to 10 sandbags per vehicle. Sandbags are self-service; the Town will provide the bags and sand, but residents will need to bring their own shovel and load their own sand.

Residents who require assistance may make an appointment with Town staff to pick up pre-bagged sand at a designated time. To book an appointment, or for any questions, please contact the Stormwater Utility at 520-229-4850 or
