The City of Sammamish is committed to keeping our water clean!

And you can help ...

To spread awareness and engage our community in helping to Keep Sammamish Clean, we are continuing the rainwater pollution prevention campaign. Together, we can protect Lake Sammamish, our local mascot “the little red fish” – kokanee salmon, and other native species! You can help to Keep Sammamish Clean by taking part in community challenges or activities, encouraging others to participate, and adopt new techniques for rainwater pollution prevention. We would like to learn more about car care and leak prevention, please help us by taking this quick survey!


Car Care and Leak Prevention


It can be hard to tell if that leak under your car is from your vehicle, just the rain, or from someone else’s vehicle. As we head into fall and winter, now is a great time to prepare your vehicle by getting any leaks checked out and repaired. This simple action helps to protect our local waterways from harmful car fluids. The City of Sammamish reminds you to not Drip & Drive!


Tips for Car Care and Leak Prevention

  • If you are not sure what is leaking and want to try to diagnose your leak before seeing a mechanic, look at this guide from fixcarleaks.org – here you use the location of the leak, the color, and the texture to sleuth out the issue.




  • Attend a FREE Auto Leaks workshop if you live in the Puget Sound area. This workshop is run by experts from the Certified Automotive Training Centers at various locations. At the workshop you will:
    • Learn from local, certified automotive instructors.
    • Receive a 2-hour class about basic automotive systems, how to care for vehicles and more information on the impacts of leaks in vehicles.
    • Have the opportunity to stay after the class and have your vehicle inspected.
