Moline Sandbagging Complete, No More Volunteers Needed

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE

Sandbagging work is complete in Moline and no more volunteers are needed.

The city thanks all of the volunteers that have helped the City with making sandbags to prepare for the predicted major flooding.

Original

Moline is one of a few communities spending a couple of days now sandbagging and asking for volunteers. City crews are both shoveling by hand and using a machine to fill the bags and will probably do close to 25,000 to 30,000 altogether. 

At this point many of the areas threatened by rising water are protected by sandbags, like WIU Q.C. campus and parts of downtown. Still, crews continue this process wanting to build up a surplus just in case. They say it can be tedious but are trying to make the best of it. 

Volunteers are still welcome Wednesday at the public works building starting at 7 a.m. Any resident or business in need of sandbags the city will bring the supplies out to you, but it is up to the private property owner to take care of the assembly process.
