Squaw Valley Ski Resort Handles Water Contamination With Extreme Diligence and Care

Squaw Valley Ski Resort recently reported that a problem in the water supply on the upper mountain and as a result, the system had to be shut down. Placer County Environmental Health Department was called, and on Nov. 8th, they investigated and found small amounts of E.coli and coliform bacteria in the system.

 

Andy Wirth, CEO and president, has handled the situation very professionally and kept the entire resort under observation even though only the upper mountain was affected. When the Health Department was called, Wirth also contacted several other water specialists to obtain second opinions on correcting the problem.

 

Since then, the restaurants have been closed on the upper mountain and bottled water is being furnished for all of the guests throughout the resort. Upper Mountain has remained open for skiing from the top to bottom every day, and there have been no reports of anyone getting sick or affected anywhere under these precautions.

 

Andy Wirth Authorized a Public Statement

 

On Wednesday, Nov. 30, Squaw Valley Board of Directors authorized Liesl Kenney, the Public Relations Director of Squaw Valley, to make a public statement about the cause and the progress that was being made.

 

The water experts united in defining the reason for the coliform bacteria entering the upper mountain water system. During the summer, a new system was installed at High Camp and Gold Coast. Then this fall unusually heavy rain led to the inundation of the upgraded water system. At that time, all of the water systems were tested, and the bacteria was found to be limited to the upper mountain system. The contaminated water was never available to the public.

 

The Placer County Health Department has been testing the levels and will continue to do so until the water has returned to normal. Then all of the guests will be informed concerning the water usage at High Camp and Gold Coast, and when it will be reinstated.

 

All of the other facilities will offer full access to all of the guests in the resort. Squaw Valley takes safety issues extremely seriously, and until everything is restored, we will continue releasing updates.
