Sandbag Distribution Ends This Week

As the region’s monsoon nears its end, the City of Tucson Transportation Department’s Operation Splash sandbag program will conclude this week. The pre-filled sandbag distribution site at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds (4823 S. 6th Ave.) from 4-8 p.m. tonight, Sept. 11, will be the last of the season. The self-service sandbag operation in the Hi Corbett Field east parking lot (700 S. Randolph Way) will end this Friday, Sept. 13, at noon.

Both sites will reopen if the weather forecast calls for heavy rain and flooding in the fall.
