With Missouri River levels and concerns both rising, Burleigh County will now be offering sand bag fill sites.
Burleigh County has established two, self-fill sandbagging sites for citizens to fill and take sandbags, free of charge. Citizens need to bring their own shovels and gloves.
Mary Senger; Emergency Manager for Burleigh County: “You know, again, we have some areas that are low-lying, and we know which areas those are. But, 13 feet, we’re still doing pretty good.”
Senger says the county won’t be concerned until levels hit 14 and a half to 15 feet. She says the emergency services department is providing many resources.. and as much information as possible on their website. If you feel concerned about your own property being damaged by the river, call your county’s emergency services department.
