SAND BAGS: HOW TO GET THEM AND HOW TO USE THEM
If you are at risk of flooding, don’t wait until it is too late to act.
Ottery St Mary Town Council has a limited supply of bags from East Devon DC. You can collect them from the Town Council offices during normal office hours (that’s Monday to Friday, between 10.00am and 1.00pm). You will need to use your own sand.
Sandbags offer some protection by keeping water out for short periods when used together with plastic sheeting and garden soil can be used in emergencies as a substitute for sand.
There’s lots of helpful advice about using sand bags available from the Environment Agency
