FORCE MAIN BREAKDOWN AFFECTS WEST END BEACHES

June 24, 2003 – The public was advised on Tuesday to stay away from all of the Frederiksted beaches northwest of the Ann Abramson Pier "until further notice" because of a breakdown of the sewage system's Lagoon force main.
According to Public Works Commissioner Wayne Callwood, an "antiquated" portion of old sewage system piping in the area broke, and the pump station was shut down so that repairs could be undertaken. This, he said, "resulted in a bypass situation."
He attributed the break to "the area demand and the age of the system."
According to Callwood, the pipe "will be replaced within the next day or two, and the pump station will be turned back on at that time."
