WAPA Clearing Site for Propane Conversion
Items Stored in St. Thomas Bunkers Must be Removed

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority is asking all persons who have items stored in the Authority’s bunkers on St. Thomas to have them removed by this Sunday, March 16. WAPA recently received the Coastal Zone Management Permits to begin development of the propane facility sites on St. Thomas and St. Croix. During site preparations, the bunkers on St. Thomas’ Sarah Hill were being cleared when crews found items that do not belong to the Authority. WAPA’s Executive Director Hugo V. Hodge, Jr. has made a public request for the items to be removed immediately by their owners. “Over the past years individuals may or may not have received permission to store items in WAPA’s bunkers,” said Hodge, “but outside of what the Federal Government has stored, everyone else at this time must remove their items or we will dispose of them.” WAPA will begin clearing the bunkers of unclaimed items on Monday morning, March 17.
While the bunkers are located outside of the main power plant, they are on Authority owned property, therefore only those persons with claim to the items in the bunkers will be allowed to access the site. Persons wishing to claim and remove their belongings from inside the bunkers must contact WAPA’s project engineer Gabriel Dore at 340-626-3744.
