Squaw Valley Ski Holdings Reacts to Reports of Drinking Water Contamination

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows ski resort has found it necessary to address the public regarding a report of drinking water contamination found at the upper mountain location of Squaw Mountain. The issue came to the attention of the Placer County Department of Environmental Health in early November. The testing revealed coliform and E.Coli bacteria in the water. No illness or health concerns have been reported but consumption of the water was banned until the problem is resolved.


The Public Relations Director for Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Liesl Kenney, released a statement explaining the situation. It detailed the flooding of a recently upgraded water system during an especially severe rainstorm in October. This overflow led to a contamination to only one system while all others remain untouched. The results of in-house testing revealed the contamination which was immediately reported to both the Placer County Environmental Health department and the Squaw Valley Public Service District.


The ski resort is working with these departments to address the concern and will continue to remain on top of the problem until the water quality is returned to its normal, safe purity level. No water is being used through the affected system at either High Camp or Gold Coast. This procedure will remain in place until cleared for use by public health officials.


The ski resort staff also expressed how seriously they are taking this concern because of the importance of the safety of all of their guests. The use of the facilities is unchanged and they continue to supply bottled water, free of charge, to all guests to eliminate any potential inconvenience. An additional announcement will be made once the matter has been resolved.

How EOS Became A Popular Lip Balm

EOS is known for it’s fun colors, cheap price, and easy to use ball. What a lot of people don’t really know is how they came about and how they got so popular on Facebook and other social media sites. Essence of Smooth had to go through a lot to be the company that it is today.

At first, EOS was meant to be a dental care company to help people with their teeth. They surveyed around and agreed to turn it towards the skin protection route with a modern touch. The chapstick back in the 1900’s used to come in a stick or a small tube that you’d have to squeeze it out of. EOS lip balm found a way to innovate the procedure to just rubbing your lips with natural ingredients that smell good and don’t stick or melt.

Even though they weren’t known at first, the company pushed through to develop the 95% natural product that every skin type can use. With the boastful lip balm, Essence of Smooth made it’s way to convenient stores all around the United States. From there word got out to locals and have made it’s way to magazines and fashion shows. They now stand as the second best selling balm and have started to develop lotions and other things for their customers.
