ST. JOHN TO GET SAFE WATER DURING PLANT REPAIR

The Water And Power Authority announced Wednesday it will be using a recently installed reverse osmosis plant to supply potable water to St. John while the island's desalination unit is down for maintenance.
WAPA has contracted with Seven Seas Water Corp. to use its reverse osmosis plant to produce water meeting the standards of the Safe Drinking Water Act. The water will be supplied through WAPA's distribution system and the St. John standpipes.
The desalination unit is expected to be out of service for six weeks.
