Saturday Sandbag Pickup: Waldo Canyon & Black Forest

Sandbags will be available to homeowners facing impacts from potential flash flooding in and near the Waldo Canyon burn scar.  They'll be given away free at the Verizon Wireless building on Garden of the Gods Road from 8 - 2 Saturday. The sand comes from last week's Olympic Downtown Celebration and its sand volleyball pit.

Black Forest residents in burn areas affected by debris flows and flash flooding are able to pick up sandbags beginning at 10 am Saturday morning, August 3. The sandbags are available at the Crosses for Losses storefront on Black Forest Road, near Shoup. El Paso County has provided four dump truck loads of sand and 2500 sandbags for this effort, coordinated by Black Forest Crosses for Losses.
