    The City of Sammamish’s maintenance and operations crews do their best to keep the more than 10,000 public storm drains working properly. However, they can't clear off all the autumn leaves, especially during heavy rains, and that is where the City asks residents to do their part. This weekend heavy rains are expected and here is a quick list of things you can do to help:

    • Keep storm drains clear of leaves and debris by using a broom or rake; drains near street corners and low areas of streets and parking lots usually need special attention (Remember to be safe; do not wade into flooded areas)
    • Place fallen leaves and other yard waste in your brown yard waste container or compost them in your garden
    • Please do not blow leaves into the street and leave them there
    • Make sure that your gutters and downspouts are clean
    • The City recommends using landscape barriers, such as rocks, to prevent bark, dirt and other landscape materials from washing into the streets and clogging drains
    • If you're in an area where flooding is known to occur, keep sand bags on hand and put valuables in a high, dry location
