Riverton City offers sandbags to the public as part of its emergency service programs.  To manage appropriately the city asks the public to follow these instructions:

For Flood Emergencies Contact:
  • Primary: Public Works Administrative Assistant: 801-208-3162
  • Secondary: Stormwater Manager: 801-208-3152; 801; 801-634-1218
  • Third: City Hall Receptionist 801-208-3163
  • Fourth: City Hall 801-254-0704 and ask for Public Works Department

For Non-Emergencies Contact:
Non-Emergencies are anticipated flood events usually warnings of forecast cloudburst storm events.
Non-Emergency callers will need to file a Sandbag Application.  You may email the application, or print and bring it to the Public Works Department at 12526 S 4150 W, Riverton. Usually applicants will need to fill their own sandbags.


Emergency and non-emergency applicants are expected to dispose of their own sandbags.  An exceptions will be described on the application or dictated on case by case basis.  Suggested options for sandbag disposal include but not limited to: Transjordan Landfill,  trash receptacle by one bag at a time, used on your property, etc. 

Do not dump sandbags in creeks, rivers, canals, ditches, roadway gutters, storm drain inlets or anywhere but your own property.  Also take care to manage bags as they will degrade quickly from UV rays and become trash and a nuisance.
