STT Water Interruption - Subbase Area

(Thursday, November 13, 2014)

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority has scheduled water service interruption for the St. Thomas Subbase area from 6 a.m. Saturday, November 15 through 3 a.m. Sunday, November 16.  Customers west of the Old Joe’s Discount building will have water service interrupted while crews lower the 18 inch transmission water main to allow the Dept. of Public Works to replace a collapsed culvert by Joe’s Discount. This work is needed in order to provide better storm water drainage to customers in the Subbase area, as far west as WAPA’s Water Distribution Department.  

Vehicular traffic in the area will be reduced to one lane while repairs are in progress. Motorists and pedestrians are asked to observe signs and flaggers’ directions.

Customers are urged to store adequate water for use during the service interruption. The Authority apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this interruption, and ensures customers that every effort will be made to restore water service as quickly as possible.

For more information call the Water Distribution department at 775-5873 or email communications@viwapa.vi.
