Squaw Valley has been hit with an unforeseen problem: water contamination due to a storm. In October 2016, a storm had hit one of the facility’s newer water supply systems, thus contaminating it. While contamination by storm is oftentimes unlikely, management has taken immediate action to resolve the issue. Safety of its patrons are the highest priority, and management has culminated an appropriate response to the issue that will resolve it within a short amount of time.
Immediately after contamination, Squaw Valley has contacted water safety experts that provided professional consultation on the matter that has greatly aided in resolving the issue at hand. This information has provided Squaw Valley with insight on the matter, and thus began contacting local agencies for assistance. Placer County Environmental Health and Squaw Valley Public Service District have begun aiding the Squaw Valley Ski lodge to receive positive results in solving this ongoing issue of water contamination.
Fortunately, patrons will still have regular access to the facilities at Squaw Valley Ski Lodge during this time. However, patrons are warned about the water contamination and are told not to consume it under any circumstances due to health risks. Squaw Valley management will instead give free bottled water during this time to ensure that its’ customers have drinking water while regular access to the facility’s water remains prohibited.
Squaw Valley management has taken the appropriate steps in resolving the issue, and thus will continue to work for its’ patrons’ safety during this time. Customer safety is of utmost priority to Squaw Valley, and they will continue to preserve this ideal as they work diligently to fix this ongoing issue.
