With the large snowpack in the Gunnison River Basin this winter, low-lying areas could be at risk of flooding during the run-off this spring. Sandbags can be purchased from several sources, including local hardware stores and lumberyards. Local governments may also have sandbags available to purchase. Prepare early – don’t wait until the last minute. For more information, including instructions on the filling and stacking of sandbags, check out Gunnison County Emergency Management’s Flood Info webpage.
