Squaw Valley Responds to Water Contamination Issue

Squaw Valley’s director of public relations Liesl Kenney recently provided an official statement on behalf of the resort concerning the water contamination in the Gold Coast and High Camp regions of Squaw Valley. The water became affected by E.coli and coliform bacteria after a severe rain inundated the water system and introduced these harmful bacteria to the water. The rain issue happened in October, and the water system had been upgraded not long before the water contamination.

 

Kenney states that as soon as the issue was detected, Placer County Environmental Health and the Squaw Valley Public Service district were contacted. These organizations began treatment on the water right away, and a number of other water safety experts were contacted as well. There are now only small amounts of coliform in the water in three of the four wells at the Upper Mountain, and E.coli has been fully eliminated from all Upper Mountain wells. However, the restaurants in the Upper Valley will stay closed until the water is completely safe, and individuals staying at the resort have been given bottled water for drinking. None of the vacationers or staff members at Squaw Valley have reported any health issues.

Kenneys shares that Squaw Valley wishes to thank Placer County Environmental Health and Squaw Valley Public Service District for their prompt attention concerning the water contamination issue. She emphasizes that individuals who are visiting Squaw Valley still have full access to all amenities. Top to bottom skiing is still allowed for those who are visiting the resort and Squaw Valley is working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
