Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority

March 10th, 2018 – The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA) announced that electricity had been restored to all eligible customers in the territory. In the wake of hurricanes Irma and Maria, two Category 5 storms in September, approximately 55,000 customers of WAPA were left without service.  A joint effort by WAPA, FEMA, Haugland Energy, BBC Electric, mutual aid utilities, other off-island contractors and on-island contractors led to the restoration of service to 90 percent of eligible customers within 100 days.

January 17, 2018 – WAPA will begin a No Customer Left Behind campaign on St. Croix and St. Thomas. Similar to the ongoing effort on St. John, the No Customer Left Behind program is aimed at reconnecting all customers who can be restored to the electric grid, and who may have been bypassed during the first phase of service restoration.

“As the territory-wide restoration effort nears completion, the No Customer Left Behind campaign will allow residents in both districts an opportunity to inform WAPA if they have not yet been restored. This includes customers who are either missing service connections to their weather heads, missing meters, or who were bypassed because their weather head and/or meter base was not ready to be reenergized in previous stages of the restoration,” said Clinton Hedrington, Jr., Acting Executive Director / CEO of WAPA.

Three hotline numbers have been established: St. Croix, 340-715-8022, St. John, 340-715-8020 and St. Thomas, 340-715-8021. In addition, WAPA has established texting options for customers to request restoration. Customers can text their account number and request restoration of service to the following numbers: On St. Croix, 340-244-9004 and on St. Thomas – St. John, 340-244-8072. The customer’s information will be collected by a WAPA employee on the respective island, and will then be channeled to the appropriate divisions so restoration can be scheduled. “The goal is once a customer makes contact with the No Customer Left Behind hotline, assuming all documentation is in order, that customer will be restored within three days,” he added. Customers who cannot experience service restoration within three days will be contacted and provided with a projected restoration date.

As of Monday, more than 46,000 customers have been restored territory-wide, which represents approximately 95% of customers eligible for restoration.

WAPA customers who have not yet been restored, are encouraged to call or text the No Customer Left Behind hotline on their respective island. We continue to Recover, Rebuild & Restore. WAPA…Working for You!!

January 6, 2018 – RESTORATION UPDATE

  • Restoration work continued across the territory this week with service restored to an additional 1,762 customers since January 1. Restoration levels now stand at 92% on St. Croix, 99% on St. John, and 91% on St. Thomas.
  • A No Customer Left Behind campaign is underway on St. John aimed at reconnecting all customers who can be restored to the electric grid, and who may have been bypassed during the first phase of service restoration. Similar campaigns will be launched for St. Thomas and St. Croix as we get closer to the end of restoration on those islands. A No Customer Left Behind telephone hotline number, 340-715-8020, has been established for St. John customers to call. The customer’s information will be collected by a WAPA employee on St. John, and will then be channeled to the appropriate divisions so restoration can be scheduled. The goal is once a customer makes contact with the No Customer Left Behind hotline, assuming all documentation is in order, that customer will be restored within 72 hours.
  • Self-service payment kiosks are available at the Customer Service offices on St. Croix and St. Thomas during normal business hours, and at Petrus Plaza on St. Thomas, seven days a week, 6 am -11 pm.
  • Customer Service Offices operate Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Sunny Isle on St. Croix, at Port of Sale Mall on St. Thomas, and at The Marketplace on St. John 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
  • WAPA is issuing bills for electrical and water service provided prior to September 6. Late fees usually assessed after the due date are being waived. However, customers are being encouraged to make payment once they have received their bills. Again, these bills are for services provided prior to Hurricane Irma.
  • Customers are advised that WAPA continues to receive regular shipments of materials and supplies in both districts to complete the restoration. Transformers, which are vital to the continue restoration of service, are being dispatched with crews as soon as they arrive.
  • Licensed electricians must certify, in writing, that a structure covered by a blue roof is safe to re-energize before electrical restoration can take place.
  • If your electrical meter was removed by WAPA, you are required to complete repairs to the meter base and or weather head, have the work certified, in writing, by a licensed electricians and notify the Customer Service office that the repair work has been completed. All meter removal and associated reconnection fees have been waived during this restoration period.

The continued damage by heavy equipment poses difficulty in maintaining or restoring potable water service to customers.

November 22, 2017 – Speaking at a news conference hosted by Acting Governor Osbert Potter on Wednesday, Executive Director Julio Rhymer, Sr. thanked WAPA’s employees, along with the on and off-island contractors, and the public who continue to support the ongoing restoration of electrical service across the territory. Rhymer reported that the buildout of primary circuits is essentially complete and approximately 40% of customers in the territory have been restored. The number of restored customers is in excess of 19,000. Rhymer also said additional linemen arrived on St. Croix Wednesday from Ocala, Tallahassee and South Carolina to augment the restoration work.

In a broad overview of the restoration on St. Croix, Rhymer said crews were working late Wednesday to restore service to residents at the Aureo Diaz housing community. Service was restored to customers in Estates Welcome, Solitude, Peter’s Rest and from Barren Spot to La Reine. The UVI campus was also restored, as well as the Cruzan Rum distillery and homes in Mount Pleasant, all along Centerline Road.

On St. Thomas, service was restored to customers in Fortuna, Hull Bay, Agnes Fancy, Altona, Savan, Anna’s Retreat and Bolongo. Some residents in Frenchtown were restored on Tuesday evening and the majority of that community will be restored within one week. Service was also restored to businesses on Harwood Highway from MSI to just outside the entrance to Subbase. Primary lines have been strung in Old Tutu up to the Mc Bean ball park as well as in Estate Mafolie. Electrical service to approximately 75% of the 115 customers on Water Island has been restored. Work on reconstructing the Ridge Road Feeder continues with a portion of the primary circuits already energized.

On St. John, efforts are progressing to complete the build out of primary circuits toward Coral Bay and should be completed by the weekend. Crews are also working to restore service in Fish Bay, Estate Adrian, Glucksberg, and at residences in George Simmonds Terrace.

The latest round of linemen will bring to more than 750 total, the number of electrical personnel who are in the territory working on our recovery from the catastrophic September hurricanes. As of early this week, more than 16,000 customers have been restored territory-wide.
  • Through an agreement reached with the Department of Planning & Natural Resources, WAPA will restore electrical service to homes with temporary roofs (blue roofs) once a licensed electrician has certified, in writing, that the structure is safe to energize.
  • Customers and electricians are reminded that it is against the law to remove or otherwise destroy meter seals. If work needs to be done to repair a damaged meter base and/or weather head, customers must call the Emergency Call Center at 340-774-1424 on St. Thomas-St. John or 340-773-0150 on St. Croix. The call centers operate seven days a week, 9 am – 5 pm.
  • If your electric meter was removed by WAPA personnel to facilitate repairs to either a meter base and/or weather head, once repairs are completed and a licensed electrician certifies the work in writing, customers are required to contact the Customer Service office to ensure that the meter will be reinstalled and resealed prior to the restoration of electrical service. All fees usually associated with meter removal and reconnection have been waived. Customer service offices are operating Monday-Friday, 9 am – 4 pm at Sunny Isle on St. Croix and Port of Sale Mall on St. Thomas.
  • Reconstruction, restoration and hurricane debris removal crews are deployed across the islands. Motorists are asked to exercise caution when driving through the work areas and to heed the directions of flaggers, military personnel and VIPD officers who are assisting with traffic control.
  • WAPA urges residents to shut off standby generators when line crews are in your neighborhood restoring electrical service. A standby generator has the potential to back feed electricity to the grid which poses a severe safety risk to restoration crews.

POTABLE WATER SYSTEM

  • There are six days (76%) of emergency water storage on St. John, eight days (60%) on St. Thomas, and five days (70%) on St. Croix.
  • WAPA urges clean-up contractors and homeowners in both districts to exercise caution when piling debris on and around potable water meters. There are a growing number of instances where water meters are being damaged by clean-up equipment grading debris and causing damage to the roadside water meters. The continued damage by heavy equipment poses difficulty in maintaining or restoring potable water service to customers.

POTABLE WATER SYSTEM

There are six days of emergency water storage on St. John, ten days on St. Thomas and seven days on St. Croix.

WAPA reminds the public that a precautionary boil water notice, for potable water customers, is in place for the District of St. Croix. Due to a drop in water pressure, as a precaution, we advise that all water used for drinking, cooking, making infant formula or juices, making ice, brushing teeth, washing fruits or vegetables and washing dishes, be boiled. Bringing water to a rolling boil and maintaining for one full minute is sufficient.  Water must be adequately cooled before it can be used and should be stored in clean, covered containers. As an alternative, bottled water certified for sale by the Department of Health may be used. The boil water notice for the St. Thomas-St. John district has been lifted.

WAPA urges clean-up contractors and homeowners in both districts to exercise caution when piling debris on and around potable water meters. There are a growing number of instances where water meters are being damaged by clean-up equipment grading debris and causing damage to the roadside water meters.
