St. John has a new bright green structure in the middle of downtown thanks to the Water And Power Authority.


Building the tank

About five months after WAPA employees dismantled Cruz Bay’s old 500,000-gallon holding tank — which dated from the 1970s — work was completed on the new 750,000-gallon water tank early last month.

Despite the expanded storage capacity, however,  government officials cautioned residents to remain vigilant in conserving water.
