Electric Service Interruptions this Weekend on St. Thomas

(Friday, July 27, 2012)

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority is advising its St. Thomas customers of two power interruptions scheduled for this weekend.

On Saturday, July 28, some customers on feeder #9A will experience an interruption to allow line personnel to replace two damaged poles. The scheduled outage will affect Dronningens and Nye Gades from 7 a.m. to noon.

On Sunday, July 29, a section of feeder #8B that covers the Wintberg, Skyline Drive, and St. Joseph & Rosendahl areas, will experience an outage from 7 to 9 a.m., to allow line personnel to reroute conductors to a new pole and adjust a leaning pole. 

Motorists are asked to drive with caution and to observe all traffic directions.  WAPA thanks the community for its patience and will make every effort to restore service as quickly as possible.
