Persistent heavy rain has delayed troubleshooting and repairs to Feeder 13 on St. Thomas, V.I. Water and Power Authority officials announced Monday morning. The previously announced power rotation schedule for associated feeders remains in effect, the authority said.

Personnel have preliminarily identified the location of Feeder 13’s fault, in the portion of Feeder 13’s line running underground near Frenchtown, the release stated.

Due to persistent rain causing hazardous working conditions for WAPA personnel, troubleshooting and repairs have been suspended until rain subsides and conditions become safe for work to resume.

The feeder rotation schedule remains in effect and is subject to change once load can be accommodated. Any changes made will only affect the feeders within the set time block, WAPA said.
