City of Sammamish - COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information & Resources
Autumn is turning many of our trees into brilliant showpieces of color, but some of those golden-hued leaves are already falling – so the City of Sammamish is asking its residents to express heartfelt commitment to our community and “Show a Little Storm Drain Love.”
“Storm drains are all too often underappreciated, and they are out there every day, ready to help and protect us,” says Engineering Technician Lisa Werre. “Their main purpose is help prevent flooding caused by quickly moving rain water or melting snow and ice (hence the name 'storm' drain), off paved surfaces like roads, parking lots and driveways. Taking care of storm drains is important because when water can’t get down them, it can cause flooding. Even a little bit of water can cause problems if it freezes or makes leaves slippery.”
What’s the best way to “Show a Little Storm Drain Love?”
There are many ways you can show your Storm Drain love, depending on your personal Love Language.
We all know a little attention can go a long way, and with the rainy season right around the corner it is especially important to “Show a Little Storm Drain Love” now – and throughout the year.
