Dickinson County has opened two sandbag fill sites - one in Spirit Lake and one in Milford.

The site in Spirit Lake is located at the Spirit Lake Public Works building just south of Fareway at 2012 Keokuk Avenue.

The Milford site is located at the Milford Public Works building at 1706 M Avenue. From the intersection of Highway 71 and 17th Street, go two blocks west, then one block north on M Avenue.

The sites are open to any resident of Dickinson County and are self-serve, meaning we are providing sand and sandbags ONLY. Persons going to the sites will need to bring shovels and will have to fill and haul their own sandbags.

Dickinson County Emergency Management would like to thank the cities of Milford and Spirit Lake for their cooperation in setting up these sites.
