Construction / Downhill water run-off unnoticed by City of Sammamish

Down hill water run off on (east side of lake) Sammamish plateau is very very bad and getting much worse due to continued inadequate care by Sammamish City Management.

The City of Sammamish is not interested in discussions nor taking action on behalf of residents - to protect their property if living on a private road.
In place working drains during construction, are covered by debris, machines, and the staging of timber off of these lots, while building continues and downhill residents are flooded. There is zero care from the City of Sammamish with regard to building permits surrounding this issue. King County drains are rigorously barricaded to protect them from builder and construction damages when construction is taking place. The City of Sammamish does nothing to protect existing working older drains, allowing excavation and building crews to cover them completely. After the drain is filled with silt the city is ignorant of the situation and provides zero support for the harmed property owner.

This is just not the vision the city claims to provide support for. states as follows:
“Respect the character and integrity of existing neighborhoods.” Provide accessible, quality government service and encourage active, involved citizens; to date the city has not responded to my mails as a concerned property tax paying citizen of Sammamish!
