‘Routine’ Sewer Cleaning In F’sted Begins On Strand Street Monday: VIWMA
FREDERIKSTED — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) said today that it will begin routine sewer line cleaning on Strand Street in the west end port town starting Monday.
Work will continue in Frederiksted until April 21, according to the VIWMA.
While the work is going on, portions of Strand Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from Fisher Street to Market Street, the VIWMA said.
“Traffic will be rerouted accordingly within the limits of the cleaning operation,” VIWMA spokeswoman Melody Rames said. “Please heed to the directive of the VIWMA Officers and the respective traffic controls.”
Sewer lines take wastewater from homes and businesses to the main wastewater treatment plants, VIWMA said.
“Sewer line cleaning is a preventative maintenance tool used by the VIWMA to identify and remove buildup in sewer lines that may cause sewage overflows onto public streets, affecting homes, businesses and adversely impacting public health and the environment,” Rames added.
The VIWMA Preserving Paradise Team “continues to work diligently to provide reliable services to the public and would like to thank the community for their patience and cooperation.
