WAPA TO FIX BROKEN WATER MAIN MONDAY

The main potable water distribution line in Sub Base broke around 11:30 p.m. Sunday. The Water and Power Authority will complete repairs to the broken main by 10 p.m. Monday, according to a release from WAPA.
Patricia Blake Simmonds, WAPA spokesperson, said the break, which was due to age, has not caused any flooding, but the road is closed between Joe's Discount and Public Works. Simmonds said motorists wanting to go to Crown Bay Marina should use the road between L'escargot Restaurant and the marina.
Or motorists can enter from the Lindbergh Bay turn-off.
However, due to closure of the standpipe, higher elevations in Charlotte Amalie and Sugar Estate will experience low water pressure while repairs are being completed.
