The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (“WAPA” or “Authority”) would like to advise the public of road construction on St. Croix beginning tomorrow, August 29, 2023, from approximately 9 AM – 3 PM affecting Hannah’s Rest Road and Centerline Road (detailed traffic detour map included.) The road construction is part of the excavation process and exploratory dig being conducted to facilitate a waterline tie-in for the Campo Rico Waterline Rehabilitation Project.

Following excavation, there will be a potable water service interruption on Wednesday, August 30, 2023, beginning at 3 PM for an approximate 10-hour duration to allow for completion of the connection from the old system to the new rehabilitated system. This temporary water interruption will impact the following areas:

  • Mars Hill
  • Claude O. Markoe Elementary School
  • Walter I.M. Hodge Pavilion Housing Community
  • Department of Planning and Natural Resource Office
  • Target Gas Station
  • Hannah’s Rest
  • White Lady
  • White Bay
  • Stoney Ground
  • Two Brothers
  • Smithfield

The Campo Rico Waterline Rehabilitation Project will benefit St. Croix’s Campo Rico community by improving water quality, reducing system wide water loss, and improving infrastructure and system reliability.

The Authority thanks the community for its understanding and patience, as progress towards water infrastructure upgrades continues.
