Favorable Report Of Squaw Valley’s Upper Mountain Water Supply

The upper mountain region of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort has been under water restriction since early November when the maintenance staff doing routine testing found the upper mountain system tested positive for E. coli and coliform bacteria.

 

Placer County Department of Environmental Health had been notified immediately and has been working in conjunction with Squaw Valley to resolve the contamination factor. Squaw Valley representatives recently released a statement (which can be found here) of events leading up to the incident and the latest water readings from all four wells in the upper mountain area.

 

According to Squaw Valley, there was a new water system installed on the upper mountain right before a big rain storm at the end of October that brought a deluge of water into the new system and contaminated the wells. Squaw Valley’s fast notification and treatment of the water issue resulted in minimal damage to the system.

 

Three out of four of the wells report no E. coli and low levels of coliform bacteria present. Squaw Valley also has stated that none of the water from these wells was ever offered for human consumption. The upper mountain restaurants will remain closed until all reports come back negative for any contaminates. Patrons that visit the upper mountain area are offered bottled water and restroom facilities are open for use.

 

Squaw Valley Ski Resort is dedicated to fixing the water issues and will continue to work with Placer County in the treatment of the water. Squaw Valley will notify the patrons and the general public when the water issues have been cleared up and facilities are reopened. The upper mountain area is still available for top to bottom skiing.
