UNDERGROUND PROBLEM BLAMED FOR POWER CUTS

Oct. 1, 2001 – Power outages Monday on the East End of St. Thomas and on St. John were caused when "a termination failed on the underground feeder to the East End substation," according to a Water and Power Authority release.
WAPA workers were tieing the East End feeders into the operational system and had restored service to all areas except the Ridge Road, 7D and 9D feeders and a portion of St. John, the release said.
The utility company expected to complete the process of repairing the splice in the underground system Monday evening, it said.
