The district has provided water and sewer services since 1948. It was formed as King County Water District 82 in 1948 by 35 residents of the northwest corner of Pine Lake. Subsequent annexations and mergers with Water District 121 (Beaver Lake area) and 122 (Cascade View area north of state Route 202) increased the service territory to 29 square miles servicing about 16,000 water customers.
The district completed its first sewer plan in 1970 and now serves about 10,000 sewer customers. The name was changed to Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District in 1987 to more closely reflect the plateau location.
