Community Center / News / Virgin Islands / July 18, 2019

ST. THOMAS — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority announced Thursday that it has taken action to mitigate the effects of the sewage flow affecting the homes and businesses in the vicinity of the Savan Gut.  The authority said in a release today that it has performed temporary repairs, will begin point repairs, and has developed specifications to address permanent repairs to the hurricane-damaged sewer lines. 

The authority said its contractors are presently working in the upper Savan Gut area performing point repairs, removing debris at the location and disinfecting the area as needed. There is another breach downstream of the bridge near the Romeo Malone Community Center. Point repairs are scheduled at that location and the temporary work is anticipated to be completed within two weeks, WMA said.

Updates will be provided as the repairs progress. The authority apologized to the public for the inconvenience caused and asks for continued patience as it works to resolve the problems.  Call WMA at (340)712-4962.
