The V.I. Water and Power Authority will again start rationing water Sunday evening through Friday while water storarge is being rebuilt.
Water will be provided for 16 hours a day from 5 p.m. to 9 a.m. to the following areas: Bovoni Housing Community, Tutu High Rise Housing Community, Estate Thomas, Bergs Homes, Altona, Contant Knolls and Lindbergh Bay.
WAPA spokeswoman Cassandra Dunn said in the release that the utility is building water storage as production “stabilizes” in the Randolph E. Harley Power Plant. It will take approximately three to five days to complete this process.
“Several large users are replenishing [their] cistern water levels that were depleted during the water shortage. This has created an abnormally high usage rate,” the statement said.
On Thursday, WAPA Executive Director Hugo Hodge Jr. said the wait for repairs to be completed was over, and that St. Thomas would return to normal water service the following day.
