CHRISTIANSTED – The V.I. Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) advises residents of St. Croix and the public that construction on the Coastal Interceptor Relocation Project will begin Tuesday, May 30, 2017.

Traffic wlll be impacted on the back road from the Five Corners intersection to Breezes restaurant.

Two-way traffic will remain in effect; however, motorists are asked to reduce their speed and proceed with caution in the area.

SD&C Inc. will be performing the work, which involves the relocation of a 1,918 linearfoot submerged wastewater pipeline further inland to reduce infiltration and improve water quality.

The overall scope involves the installation of a new pump station, piping, and manholes.

The section along the public road consists of the installation of one manhole and 1200 linear feet of 4- and 6-inch piping.

This project is federally funded by a VITEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The work is expected to take three weeks to complete.

“VIWMA apologizes for any inconvieniences this may cause,” it said in a prepared statement.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 50 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
