Bozeman, MT – Residents in Gallatin County are reminded that flooding could occur at any time.  Many of the streams and rivers around Gallatin County are at capacity and do not have room to accomodate additional water.  If too much water is added, from either rain or snow melt, flooding will occur.

Residents who’s property is at risk of flooding and have not taken any action to protect their property, should do so now.  Sandbags are known to be available at the following locations:

  • Bozeman Brick and Kenyon Noble
  • Belgrade True Value
  • Lowe’s
  • Owenhouse
  • Big Sky True Value

While sandbags are an effective tool, they must be properly setup to be effective.  Please read the following information from the Army Corps of Engineers on proper sandbag use.
