STX Emergency Interruption Downtown C'sted

(Monday, April 20, 2015)

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority announces an emergency electrical service interruption for tonight, Monday, April 20, from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m., to a section of St. Croix feeder #1.  On Sunday crews discovered a blown underground transformer in downtown Christiansted.  In order to repair the feeder and ensure stability of service to customers, crews must interrupt service to install a new transformer.

The emergency interruption will affect customers in downtown Christiansted, from the Library to the St. Croix Foundation building.

Motorists are asked to observe the flagger’s directions in the area while crews make every effort to restore service as soon as possible. For more information call the Line Department at 773-0150 or email communications@viwapa.vi.

The Authority apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this emergency interruption.
