The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority advises the St. John community of a strong odor in the Cruz Bay area that is being emitted from the Cruz Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant. The odor is a result of the blower at the station being offline from recent power outages, which occurred beginning Sunday, June 27.

The treatment plant has since resumed operations; however, a residual odor remains which should dissipate within the next 24-48 hours.
