ALERT: VIWMA Advises Community LBJ Pump Station Is Temporarily Offline

LBJ Pump Station, St. Croix

The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) Preserving Paradise team advises the community that the LBJ Pump Station is off-line. 

At approximately 10 a.m., Thursday, April 5, the pump station went offline due to a damaged component in the Motor Control Center (MCC). Corrective actions are ongoing to place the pump station on-line. 

The authority advises residents with immune compromised systems to avoid standing water in the vicinity of King Street and Queen Cross Street.  Additionally, the motoring public is asked to avoid 1 King Cross Street (behind the government parking lot).  Motorists are advised to use an alternate route around this potentially impacted area.   

For additional information, contact Communications Management at 513-4171 or email communications@viwma.org.
