Potential Flood Forecast Procedures

Although we are in the desert, we do get rain. Because of the dense material that makes up our ground, the rain water doesn't get absorbed into the ground and can create flooding problems. If you are experiencing flooding because of rain water, the Town of Youngtown can assist you by providing sanding sand and sand bags. 

The sand yard is located just adjacent to the Public Works Facility at 11117 W. Peoria Avenue and is stocked with sand and sand bags. The gate to the yard is unlocked. DO NOT DRIVE INTO THE YARD! Park outside of the gate or you will get stuck. Bring your own shovel to fill the sand bags provided. Only fill each bag half full. Please be considerate and only take what you need - your neighbors will appreciate it. Make sure to close the gate when you exit the sand yard. 

In the event you drive into the sand yard and get stuck, the driver of the vehicle will be responsible for having the vehicle removed from the sand yard. 

Should you have any questions or comments about our sand yard or the above process, please contact Marty Mosbrucker, Public Works Manager, at (623) 933-8286, or by email
