2020 Lake Sammamish Flooding Document Letter to Agencies Feb. 21, 2020

Letter & Petition for Lake Sammamish Shoreline Property Owners

Lake Samm shoreline neighbors,


The recent extreme high water on the lake is only partly Mother Nature’s fault; it is also a consequence of the failure of a government flood control project and ongoing government inaction.  Measures can be taken to address this problem.

The petition itself is online.  This is the document we will send to the agencies listed below.  To review the petition, click here.


But in any case, please complete the on-line survey by clicking here

This is where you can approve the petition and provide some additional information and comments.


Responses will be compiled an submitted to The Corps of Engineers, King County, and the cities of Bellevue, Redmond, Sammamish, and Issaquah.  Something can be done, but it won’t happen unless we bring pressure to bear on those who can take action.

Thank you,

Your Lake Sammamish neighbors
