CHRISTIANSTED — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) Preserving Paradise team said that they will be doing needed maintenance in Catherine’s Rest on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 8:00 a.m.

Wastewater Division crews will be performing inspection of the manholes along the Catherine’s Rest road.

During inspection, manholes in the area will be opened, which may present nuisance odors, according to VIWMA. Deodorization will be administered locally during and after inspections to minimize impact to residents.

Residents with respiratory difficulties are advised to avoid the area. The motoring public is asked to traverse with caution and consider the use of alternate routes to avoid the impacted area.

The VIWMA Preserving Paradise Team continues to work diligently to provide reliable services and would like to thank the community for their patience and cooperation.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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 40 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. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
