Sandbags Available in Johnson Co.
Updated: Tuesday, May 28 2013, 03:12 PM CDT
IOWA CITY, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Officials in Johnson County are making sandbags available to resident who might need them later this week. As the flow from Coralville Lake increases this week, low-lying areas further downstream could flood.
Rural residents can pick up empty sandbags in the parking lot at Johnson County Secondary Roads located at 4810 Melrose Avenue West in Iowa City starting Wednesday from 6am to 8pm.
Sandbags are available to Iowa City residents at the Iowa City water treatment facility located at 80 Stephen Atkins Drive from 8am to 5pm. Those bags can be found at the second entrance, north of Stephen Atkins Drive. If the gates are locked then they've sold out.
Residents in the Stewart road area along the Iowa River can contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for sandbags.
Residents of other Johnson County communities can purchase sandbags at hardware stores or contact their local public works departments to inquire about sandbag availability.
