VIWMA Says Phone Lines Aren't Working Due To WAPA Power Outage

KINGSHILL — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) said that its main office in Estate Glynn is currently without telephone service due to a Water and Power Authority (WAPA) electrical interruption.

While WAPA is currently working to restore power to the area, St. Croix residents are asked to contact our St. Thomas office at 340-715-9100 if assistance is needed or for emergencies contact the VIWMA hotline at 844-962-8784 (WMA-USVI).

Meanwhile, WAPA said electrical service has been restored to some customers on Feeder 9B while crews continue efforts to determine the cause of the service interruption.

“The outage occurred just before 6:00 a.m., and initially affected all customers on the feeder,” WAPA said. “Presently, customers from Little La Grange to Calquohoun are in a service interruption. Portions of Morning Star, St. John, and La Grande Princesse are also affected by this outage.”

Line department crews are continuing efforts to identify the cause of the interruption, make any required repairs, and restore service as quickly and as safely as possible, according to WAPA.

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.
