Cancryn Pump Station Offline on STT, Residents Should Avoid Standing Water

The Cancryn Pump Station in downtown St. Thomas is currently offline due to a loss of electrical power and heavy rainfall, the V.I. Waste Management Authority announced Thursday morning.

This situation may lead to sewer system issues in the downtown area, potentially causing manhole overflows, it said, and advised residents to avoid any standing water in the affected area.

VIWMA is working to address the necessary repairs, according to the release. For more information, contact the Division of Education and Communications Management at 340-474-2811, or email communications@viwma.org. Stay updated by following VIWMA on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
