The WAPA Customer Service office on St. John will operate on an abbreviated schedule until further notice. The office will open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Due to Internet connectivity challenges, only checks, certified checks and money orders will be accepted as forms of payment. Customers must provide account numbers in order to process all transactions.
- Residents are reminded of the need to shut off standby generators when line crews are in their neighborhood restoring electrical service. A standby generator has the potential to back feed electricity to the grid, which poses a severe safety risk to restoration crews.
