VIWMA Says Cancryn Pump Station Is Back Online in St. Thomas

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) said that service to the Cancryn Pump Station has been restored and remains in operation.

“Residents and businesses are reminded to refrain from pouring liquid grease and various personal products down the drain,” VIWMA said. “These items can and do impact operations at the Authority’s pump stations and wastewater treatment facilities.”

VIWMA didn’t say when the Cancryn Pump Station was put back on line, but the prepared statement was issued on Sunday.

The VIWMA Preserving Paradise team said it “would like to thank the community for their cooperation and support.”

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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.
