Sandbags

DURING NORMAL OPERATIONS:

Sandbag DistributionSandbags are not generally used during normal operations and maintenance. If a resident of unincorporated Seminole County has a flooding concern, they will need to contact the Roads-Stormwater Division Customer Service Line at (407) 665-7623. This request will be forwarded to a field supervisor for evaluation. If the field supervisor determines that sandbags are needed, they will be delivered to that location.  Sandbags WILL NOT be provided for businesses or detached buildings from a home.

DURING EMERGENCY OPERATIONS:

During emergency operations, empty sandbags and dirt will be available to all residents of Seminole County.  Residents will be able to receive up to 15 empty sandbags at County sites. Dirt will be provided, but you will need to bring your own shovel and gloves.  Filled sandbags can weight approximately 30 pounds, so it is recommended to bring a partner to help you fill and load the filled sandbags into your vehicle.

SANDBAG LOCATIONS:

Seminole County and partner cities will open sandbag sites in preparation for forecasted severe weather. Sandbags are available at these sites for all County residents, up to 15 sandbags per household. Empty bags will be provided, residents should bring their own shovel and expect to fill and load their own sandbags. Social distancing will be enforced.
