Residents of Yakima County are responsible for protecting their property during floods. Residents are encouraged to acquire sand and sandbags prior to a flood event. There are a number of business within the county that provide sandbags or sandbag materials, YVEM maintains a list of these business and can be viewed below under the Commercial Sandbag Locations section. 

The Yakima County sandbag stockpile's main purpose is to protect critical infrastructure such as levees, floodgates, bridges and roads during flood emergencies to combat floods.

These sandbags can be made available to the public when all commercial supplies of sandbags are exhausted and/or a Proclamation of Emergency has been declared by the Yakima County Board of County Commissioners.  

You can read Yakima County's Sandbag Bulk Distribution/Storage and Emergency Usage Policy here: Yakima County Sandbag Policy

For more information on how to protect your property from floods with sandbags view the How to Sandbag section below.
