Water Service Interruption on St. Thomas

(Thursday, March 01, 2012)


The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority is advising its St. Thomas customers of a water interruption on Friday, March 2, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. to repair a leak in a 24” pipe in the vicinity of Joe’s Discount located in Subbase. In an effort to continue water service to as many customers as possible, the section with the damaged pipe will be isolated and water service rerouted. Customers at higher elevations on the eastern side of Charlotte Amalie, including upper Hospital Ground and Estate Thomas may experience low or no water pressure while repairs are underway. Traffic delays should be expected if motorists are entering and leaving Subbase via Veterans Drive, as traffic flow will be reduced to one lane.

Water crews will make every effort to complete the emergency work as soon as possible and apologize for any inconveniences that may occur during the repair period.
