Brief: Water Interruptions and Boil Notices Set for St. Croix

Water service will be interrupted this Friday near Estate Barren Spot and on weekdays starting Monday in parts of Estate Williams Delight, according to statements from the V.I. Water and Power Authority.
Water service for St. Croix customers on Queen Mary Highway between Wendy’s Restaurant and Estate Barren Spot will be interrupted Friday, from 8 to 11 a.m. Technicians will be replacing the old 10-inch ductile iron water line along the Bennie Benjamin Road, which leads to Gov. Juan F. Luis Hospital.
Affected areas include Estates Diamond Ruby, Strawberry and Barren Spot and the Sunny Acres community.
And starting next Monday WAPA will be installing new waterlines in St. Croix’s Estate William’s Delight. WAPA customers on 2nd Ave., 2nd St. South, and 2nd Loop will have water service interruptions Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for several weeks.
Residents of parts of Williams Delight using the public water supply should avoid drinking tap water, or boil their water for 10 minutes, until further notice.
If you are a customer in the affected Williams Delight areas whose service has not been restored by 4 p.m. daily, please call the Water Division at 773-7795 or 773-3775.
WAPA will notify the public once all new lines have been flushed and disinfected, and the water has been tested confirmed safe to consume without boiling, according to the statement.
