Sandbags available for flood protection


If you're in need of sandbags, there are several spots in Winnebago County you can pick them up.

They're available at the corner of 251 and Harlem in Machesney Park. They're also available at the Harlem-Roscoe Fire Station or the New Milford Fire Station.

Also, hazardous river conditions are limiting options for boating on the Rock River. Boaters aren't allowed near the area from the State Street Bridge to the Fordam Dam. The Winnebago CountY Sheriff's Department is also continuing a "No Wake Zone" in effect within Winnebago County, north of Auburn Street Bridge.
