Alert: Leak in Sub Base Water Line Repaired – Standpipe Open Until Midnight

March 28, 2007 – The V. I. Water and Power Authority announced Wednesday afternoon that a leak in a 16-inch water line in Sub Base had resulted in service interruption to the area.
Repairs, which were expected to be completed by early evening, have been completed ahead of schedule.
In an effort to assist the water haulers who were unable to get service at the standpipe earlier on Wednesday before repairs were completed, WAPA’s St. Thomas standpipe will remain open until midnight Wednesday rather than close at the usual 7 p.m. The standpipe will open again on Thursday morning at 7 a.m.
