Sand and Sandbags

TImage of sandbagshe city's Public Works Department makes sand and sandbags available to private property owners to assist property owner's in protecting their property and reducing their flood risk during riverine flood events.


Full sandbags are provided as they are available. Generally, due to available resources, property owners may only receive empty sandbags and sand to produce their own sandbags.  


Depending on available resources, property owners may have to pick up their sandbags. Staff is not always available for delivery. 

ยป No sand or sandbags are being delivered at this time. It is important to note limits may be placed on excessive requests inconsistent with forecast river levels and property attributes to reduce waste and ensure available supply.

Individuals who received sand and sandbags should call (563) 326-7923 or place a request online at to have them collected when they are no longer needed.
Sandbags must be placed in a pile in the curb line and not obstruct traffic.
The City will only pick up sandbags we have received a request for.
