DPW To distribute sandbags

DPW To Distribute Sandbags

In preparation for the arrival of Hurricane Irene, the Department of Public Works announced that District residents may pick up sandbags (up to five per household) at its New Jersey Avenue and K Street, SE site (entrance on New Jersey at I Street, SE). Sandbag distribution will begin on Friday, August 26, at 12 Noon and run until Midnight, and will continue on Saturday, August 27, from 8 am – Midnight.

Each sandbag weighs between 40 lbs. and 50 lbs. and residents will need to load them into their vehicles, although some assistance may be available. DPW will have employees and signage directing residents to the site entrance.
