Does Vineyard have sandbags available to residents?

Vineyard bolstered its number of sandbags this year, with about 3,000 available for public use. The city has identified multiple sand filling stations located within Vineyard that utilize the sand procured for various construction projects, including the citywide water line upgrade initiative. Vineyard City also partners with surrounding cities, Utah County, and the State to ensure that sandbags which are not needed in one location can be shipped to those cities in need. As of the end of March, the state reported they have 1.5 million sandbags. Additionally, Vineyard City has a list of contractors able to provide sandbags to help ensure a timely response to residents.  If the need for sandbag distribution arises, Vineyard City will make announcements on its social media channels (Facebook and Instagram) and through it’s emergency alert system, Everbridge.  Sign up for Everbridge notifications by visiting
