Sand And Sandbag Locations


 Keremeos: Corner of Highway 3A and 1st Avenue.


In British Columbia, property owners are responsible for taking the necessary steps on their property to protect their home and property from flooding, while government emergency programs focus on broader flood response measures. The RDOS will provide sand and sandbags for property owners as needed, in addition to information about sandbag placement. During a flooding emergency, Emergency Management BC (EMBC) may assist with funding for response works such as tiger dams, sand and sandbags, and other emergency resources.

  • If you require assistance with sandbagging, please connect with your friends, family or volunteer organizations.
  • The RDOS does not deliver sand or sandbags to private residences or business.
  • Filled sandbags are not available from the RDOS.
