Municipal Water

Sammamish is served by two water and sewer districts that cover the north and south halves of the city.

Northeast Sammamish Sewer and Water District

The northern portion of the city is covered by the Northeast Sammamish Sewer & Water District (NESSWD) which serves some parts of the city of Redmond, sources water from five deep groundwater wells. The NESSWD is bordered by Lake Sammamish on the west, the Redmond Fall-city Road on the north and approximately 239th on the east. NESSWD overlaps with Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District (SPWSD) at the southern border. NESSWD’s southern water boundary is approximately NE 20th while its southern sewer boundary varies from approximately NE 9th to NE 16th.

In 2012, the District distributed approximately 250 million gallons of water. The District is supplied entirely by ground water pumped from five wells. The District has three wells in the Evans Creek Valley and two on the Plateau. These wells serve approximately 3,265 connections or about 10,450 people. There are no chemicals added to the District’s water supply for disinfection or other purposes. The District does have a filtration plant to remove hydrogen sulfide and arsenic. (source)

The Northeast Sammamish Sewer & Water District is a member of the Cascade Water Alliance.

Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District

The south portion is covered by the Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District (SPWSD). Water is pumped from two hydrologic zones: the Plateau Zone and the Cascade Zone. The Plateau Zone serves the area south of the Redmond-Fall City Road and includes most of Sammamish, part of the City of Issaquah and areas of unincorporated King County. The Plateau Zone is supplied by groundwater pumped from wells in two separate aquifer systems, the Plateau Aquifer and the Lower Issaquah Valley Aquifer (LIVA). Eight wells draw from the Plateau Aquifer and three wells pump from the LIVA. The Plateau Zone shares a joint tank with the Northeast Sammamish Sewer and Water District. As a result, some customers in the Plateau Zone who live north of NE 8th Street may receive water from Northeast Sammamish Sewer and Water District’s sources. (source)

Waste Water Services

Two sewer systems cover the city of Sammamish.

The District’s sewer system collects the sewage and conveys it to King County Metro through a sewer forcemain on Redmond-Fall City Road and a sewer interceptor on East Lake Sammamish Parkway. Metro provides all treatment of the sewage. (source)
