Squaw Valley Water Treatment Shows Positive Results

The historic Squaw Valley Ski Resort in California’s Olympic Valley region was once the site of the Winter Olympics and is now the scene of a race to restore the drinking water of a small part of the resort to safe quality levels following a once in a lifetime rain event. Placer County Environmental Health official Wesley Nicks explained the resort was one of a number of well sites affected by the contamination that has taken place due to a rain event inundating water supplies with contaminants at a level that could not have been foreseen by experts and officials.


Wesley Nicks went on to explain a number of techniques and treatments had been used to restore the water quality to its usual levels by members of his own department in conjunction with independent water experts employed by Squaw Valley; the treatments undertaken have so far proven a success as E.Coli has been removed from three of four affected wells and levels of Coliform have also been reduced. Squaw Valley official, Liesl Kenney went on to explain the resort’s own regular testing procedures had identified the presence of the bacteria and resulted in Squaw Valley itself turning off the contaminated water supply.


The actions of Squaw Valley Ski Resort have been seen as successful as the closure of the well water system was completed before any contaminated water could be provided for guests and no medical issues have so far been linked to any water contaminants. Liesl Kenney explained the work to return the contaminated wells to safe quality levels will continue until Placer County officials declare the water safe for human consumption. In response to the drinking water issue that is now coming to a close Kenney went on to explain the ski slopes of Squaw Valley remain open and complimentary bottled water is being provided for all visitors using the Upper Mountain locations of Gold Coast and High Camp.
