Squaw Valley officials acted quickly to ensure that “contaminated water [was never] available to the public” after routine testing kicked back some unexpected results. They immediately got in contact with both Squaw Valley Public Service District and Placer County Environmental Health, as well as “other leading water safety experts.”
With the help of many experts, the resort has “taken steps to address the issue and will continue to do so until the water in the system has returned to normal levels.”
Squaw Valley’s PR Director Liesl Kenney went on to say that, “While the issue is being resolved, our guests at High Camp and Gold Coast will have normal and full access to our facilities, including free bottled water for drinking.”
This just goes to show that Squaw Valley takes exceptional measures to keep all of its guests happy and safe. Many of the resorts facilities remain completely unaffected, including the top-to-bottom skiing and many restaurants that aren’t located on the mountain top.
He says that only the Gold Coast and High Camp water systems were affected and that Squaw Valley will keep these guests updated about the quality of the water, as well as when it will be safe to drink again.
Thanks to Squaw Valley’s high standards and strict guidelines, they were able to catch and divert a potential crisis before it could even begin. Talk about quality and customer care!
Kenney concluded his statement by saying, “We will update our guests when the experts confirm that this issue has been fully resolved.”
