The historic Squaw Valley Ski Resort was recently struck by a major rain event that led to contaminated water being forced into an isolated group of wells serving a small portion of the ski slopes. The Upper Mountain region of Squaw valley is well known for its popular locations, such as High Camp and Gold Coast, but officials from Squaw Valley have revealed these successful destinations will not be served by regular drinking water supplies until they are declared free from all contaminants; instead, bottled drinking water is being made available to all visitors skiing the slopes that remain open across the mountain.
The former site of the Winter Olympics remains one of the most popular winter sports destinations in the U.S. and the water quality issues have been attacked with zeal by officials from Placer County Environmental Health Department and a group of independent water quality experts employed by Squaw Valley to ensure every possible option is explored in making sure every visitor is always offered the highest quality water. Squaw Valley Public Relations Director, Liesl Kenney recently explained the rain event that brought with it the contaminants to the groundwater supply was greater than could have been imagined for four wells that had been renovated and upgraded the previous summer.
Liesl Kenney was also at pains to point out the success that had been seen in the fight to reverse the water contamination in recent times; Kenney explained Squaw Valley’s own testing procedures can be viewed as a success as the presence of E.Coli and Coliform were identified and reported to Placer County before any drinking water could be offered to visitors skiing the Upper Mountain region. Placer County’s Wesley Nicks has explained the presence of E.Coli has been removed from three of the four affected wells, and Coliform was also reported to be showing a major reduction due to the work already completed by the assembled water experts. Liesl Kenney also reassured those visiting Squaw Valley the drinking water of the majority of the resort remains unaffected and no contaminated water will ever be offered to guests.

Brad has dealt with the one percent and with the 99% of the investing population. Therefore, he’s best suited to understand the intricacies surrounding the entire investment realm. www.reuters.com recently published an article by the guru. The piece was filled with fantastic tips and insights to the average American investor.
Here are three interesting caveats brought out in the Reuters article: –
Never place all your money on stock investments alone. Try and spread the risks with a diversified portfolio
Before hiring any fund manager, take your time to know them first.
Never invest in a niche you don’t properly understand.
Brad’s wisdom comes from years of being personally involved with the financial system. On one occasion, the proud father of two started a 529 college savings plan. Years later, as his daughters were just about to join the University, he received the shock of his life upon learning that the amount in the savings plan was less than what it started out having. That ordeal, and a few others, finally led Brad to the realization that the markets were remarkably hostile to middle-class Americans. To that effect, Mr. Reifler embarked on a lifelong quest to empower these cadres of individuals from such experiences.
