Squaw Valley Moves Forward Amid Isolated Water Issue

1 Comment

One of the many water supplies affected was that of the historic Squaw Valley Ski Resort, which happened despite a continued dedication to improving the water supply that included an upgrade that was only completed during the previous summer.

Squaw Valley released a statement to explain both the situation they have in terms of the water contamination issue on squawalpine.com and how they have handled the discovery of traces of E. Coli and Coliform in the supplies for areas of the Upper Mountain; the statement revealed the water supply from the four contaminated wells were cut off immediately and no health issues have been reported due to the contamination of the water system. All the actions taken by officials with Squaw Valley have the safety of guests and employees at their core and have included the closure of all restaurants in the Gold Coast and High Camp areas of the resort to ensure guests avoid any issues.

Alongside the closure of the restaurants in the Upper Mountain area of the slopes Squaw Valley Public Relations director Liesl Kenney has revealed all guests using the upper slopes of the resort have access to free bottled water during their visit. Officials from Placer County Environmental health Department were immediately called in to assist with the contamination issues at Squaw Valley, and have been working with the independent water experts Squaw Valley employ to keep guests healthy at all times. As no health issues have been reported and Placer County officials have already declared three wells serving Squaw Valley free of E. Coli and as having lower levels of the Coliform bacteria the reaction of the resort staff is being seen as successful; the owners of Squaw Valley have revealed they will continue to work on the water supply issues until they are solved and guests can enjoy the full range of services offered at this historic resort.
