(ST. THOMAS) August 29, 2019 - The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (“VIWMA” or “Authority”) Preserving Paradise team, on St. Thomas, has repaired a sewage overflow in the area of the Moravian Gut.  Assessment of the area began on Monday, but work was suspended Wednesday as Hurricane Dorian passed over the Virgin Islands.

 

On Thursday, VIWMA engineers reported the assigned contractor has fixed the sewage overflow.  The contractor continues to work on extending the current bypass lines beyond the impacted area. The current four-inch (4”) bypass will be replaced with a larger six-inch (6”) bypass which will reduce future blockages.  At the conclusion of the work, the area will be washed and disinfected.

 

The Authority reminds the public they can do their part in preserving paradise by reporting wastewater concerns or solid waste violation by calling our hot line at 844-WMA-USVI (844-962-8784).
