Water contamination in upper mountain of Squaw Valley

Through out the summer months High Camp and Gold Coast, located in California, installed a upgraded water system. In mid Autumn due to a torrential down pour in Placer County, a few water sources were greatly effected. Which in turn resulted in contamination of this system. Thankfully this was the only one effected.

E.coli and Coliform were found during a routine check, the proper authorities were contacted immediately. The health issue was first brought to the attention of the Placer County Department of Environmental Health in mid October. After a lot of resources were expended by the local officials, the water has shown next to no sign of Coliform and zero sign of E.coli. Restaurants and public water sources in the area have been shut down until further notice. However the famous ski resort is still in full swing.

Through the help of local officials they are consistently addressing the issue and will do so until it is fully resolved. Until the proper officials are sure the quality of the water is back to normal, the regular water usage will be cut to both High Camp and Gold Coast.

The resort has taken this issue very seriously and has put it as top priority as they do with all health issues. To compensate for the inconvenience they have ensured full access to their facilities and have included some costless essentials until the issue at hand is resolved. As the situation carries on the guests at the resort will be well informed of the current situation in a timely manner.

The Squaw Valley Public Service District and Placer County have provided a great service in a time of need and are greatly appreciated.
