Anybody who has experience working with well water systems understands the need to make sure the quality of the water used for drinking remains of the highest possible quality; Squaw Valley Ski Resort reports it recently upgraded its well water supply system to an isolated region of the expansive resort, which was followed by a major rainstorm that inundated four wells with E.Coli and Coliform. The major rain event was enough to cause considerable problems across California’s Placer County and the contamination is seen as unavoidable by all those involved.
Squaw Valley officials are reported to have moved quickly to make sure all guests were protected from the contaminated water at all times, and can take some form of solace in the fact their own water testing procedures allowed the contamination to be discovered long before any guest could even be offered drinking water in the affected Gold Coast and High Camp regions. The timeline detailed by Squaw Valley’s Public Relations Director, Liesl Kenney reveals the resort self reported the contamination to Placer County Environmental Health officials as soon as it was identified in a bid to begin treatment works as soon as possible.
Placer County officials have already given positive reports about the level of success that has already been seen in the bid to return the drinking water to safe levels. Squaw Valley has also taken its own steps to aid the return of the drinking water in the Upper Mountain area to safe levels by bringing in independent water quality specialists to work alongside Placer County officials and make sure the contamination of E.Coli and Coliform is reversed as quickly as possible. Success has already been reported as three of the four contaminated wells have seen E.Coli completely removed and Coliform levels lowered. Although the water quality battle is being won by Squaw Valley the resort is keeping its water supplies turned off in the Gold Coast and High Camp areas until officials state they are once again safe; all ski slopes remain open and complimentary bottled drinking water is available for visitors to the Upper Mountain area.
