Squaw Valley Reassures Visitors About Water Safety

by JimHanson82 .

The winter sports haven of Squaw Valley has recently moved to reassure its visitors about the quality of the water in the region after four water wells serving a small portion of the mountain were contaminated during a heavy rain event. Squaw Valley Ski Resort’s Liesl Kenney has been providing updates on the situation and recently explained the problems are being faced and defeated as traces of E.Coli and Coliform are being reduced in the well system; the four wells showing traces of contamination are part of the Upper Mountain groundwater well system that was updated in 2016.


Liesl Kenney reported the problems began with a rain event that brought more water than could reasonably be expected into the well system in a very short space of time, resulting in an inundation of contaminated water that has forced the closure of the water supply to the Upper Mountain region. Despite the problems seen with the water supply being turned off to the region, Squaw Valley believe the fact their own water testing procedures identified the contaminants before any visitor could be offered harmful water is a success they can take heart from.


Squaw Valley Ski Resort also reports no medical conditions or other links have been found that show contaminated water has caused any problem for guests to the mountain; the resort has also explained the contaminated water supply will not be restored to full working order until the all clear is given by local officials from Placer County Environmental Health Department.


As soon as the contamination was identified by officials at Squaw valley the water supply was turned off to the Upper Mountain region and the issue self reported to Placer County Environmental Health Department and Squaw Valley local government officials. Wesley Nicks of Placer County also made a statement reporting the work completed by his own officials and a team of independent water experts employed by Squaw Valley has proven successful with three of four wells already clear of E.Coli contamination and reduced levels of Coliform.
