The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) Preserving Paradise team advises the community that repairs to a collapsed 8” sewer line, which led to a manhole overflow in the No. 2 Old Hospital Grounds, are now completed.
VIWMA staff and contractors replaced approximately 30 feet of damaged pipe ceasing the bypass/non-compliance. The area will be disinfected and road repair is in progress.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
