As City and County residents clean up debris and damage from the July 28 torrential rainstorm, the City of Moab is offering assistance in helping haul away downed tree limbs in the City and also providing sandbags in preparation for potential heavy rains again on Thursday, July 29.

 Sandbags Available At West Side of Center Street Ball Fields July 28 Storm

The City’s Public Works Department has sandbags available for anyone who needs them. Sandbags can be picked up at the West parking area of the City Ball Fields across from Moab City Hall. City staff and volunteers from the Grand County High School Football Team will fill sandbags and hand them out at this location beginning at 1 p.m. Residents may bring a shovel and fill their own sandbags beginning at noon.

 City Crews Will Haul Downed Tree Limbs

City residents who need downed tree limbs removed from their property should place the limbs at the front of their yard near the street. Please do not place limbs and debris in the street or the gutter. Contact the City of Moab, 435-259-5121, or Public Works, 435-259-7485, give us your address and let us know you need the debris removed. City Streets crews will be notified and will work throughout the day to haul away as much debris as possible. 

More Rain Possible

According to the National Weather Service, more monsoonal rain is likely in our area later today (July 29) and tonight. We are monitoring the situation closely. The exact severity of the storm is not known but area residents should prepare for flooding.
