Water quality has always been high on the agenda of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort officials who had only recently completed an upgrade to the four well system that serves the Upper Mountain region of the historic winter sports destination. The upgrades made to the water system have already proven their worth following heavy October rains that caused a buildup of bacteria that was identified and halted before any guests were offered water containing the water with higher than permitted levels of E. Coli and Coliform.
The success of the program devised by Squaw Valley and their partners in the water restoration program at http://squawalpine.com/skiing-riding/weather-conditions-webcams/snow-weather-reports-lake-tahoe has been shown in a report from Placer County Department of Environmental Health’s Wesley Nicks that revealed three of the four affected wells now showed no signs of E. Coli infection and low levels of Coliform. The program to return the wells to normal operations has not yet been completed and Squaw Valley Ski Holdings statement guarantees no water from the affected wells will be used until they are declared safe by Placer County officials.
In the latest statement from Squaw Valley Ski Resort the company reveals the heavier than expected rainfall affected groundwater supplies across Placer County and was quickly identified by the upgraded water system on Wikipedia.org. Squaw Valley acted quickly because of their routine and rigorous water testing schedule that identified the issue with bacteria brought into supplies from rainwater at an stage; the first step for Squaw Valley officials was to halt the water supplies and make contact with Placer County Environmental Health Department to begin the process of returning supplies to their normal quality levels.
The owners of the historic Squaw Valley Ski Resort have taken a rigorous approach to the bacteria issue they seem to be well on the way to solving on snow-forecast.com, and have not opened restaurants in the Upper Mountain area since the problem was identified. Ski slopes in the upper mountain region have now been opened and free bottled water is available for all who are looking to enjoy some sporting action over the winter season.
