LATEST SEWAGE PROBLEM IS IN GOLDEN GROVE

July 9, 2002 – While fire raged at the Anguilla Landfill on Monday, the Public Works Department advised St. Croix residents of another problem with public health implications — a sewage spill at the Golden Grove gut area.
A Government House advisory issued Monday afternoon urged the public to avoid the area "until further notice." Also, it said, persons who have livestock should keep their animals away from the area.
Public Works was "working on a sewage spill problem from a manhole in that area," it said.
