WAPA HOLDS OFF ROTATION

The V.I. Water and Power Authority will not rotate St. Croix feeders Monday and Tuesday as previously announced.
WAPA instead has rescheduled permanent repairs to the Richmond Power Plant for this coming weekend, July 24 – July 26.
WAPA's problems began just after 5 p.m. Sunday, July 11 when an electrical short developed on high voltage cables at the Richmond substation and tripped the operating generators and desalinization units.
The mishap forced the St. Croix into an island-wide outage followed by the feeder rotation.
