E.D. Plumbing under the continued involvement of Senator Roosevelt St. C. David, who to a great extent is responsible for monies for the installation of water lines through Act 6353 approved in the 23rd Legislature has announced the soon to be completed water lines running into Smith Bay, Tutu, Bovoni and Thomasville more than six months ahead of schedule. "The residents of this territory deserve a better quality of life and that starts with electric power, and running water, the basic necessities of life." The Senator stated earlier today.
Numerous calls to my office during the end of 2002 and the beginning of 2003 focused on how to become hooked up to the potable water lines from the Water and Power Authority. I addressed this with the contractors of the project and they understood the sensitivity of the situation. We scheduled a series of meetings and all parties concluded that the residents come before rest." Senator David told reporters Thursday morning.
Senator David went on to say that, "Since the project is soon to be completed in the areas of Smith Bay, Tutu, Bovoni and Thomasville, we have requested funding to move ahead with the installation of potable water lines in Nadir and other areas. We feel that it is time to connect the island, considering the timely work that ED Plumbing has done. We feel that this is the beginning of a better Virgin Islands." The Senator concluded.
