WAPA Lifts Precautionary Boil Water Advisory in Both Districts

Rotary Club of St. Thomas II is helping residents tap their cistern water.
No more need to boil the water

Precautionary boil water advisories that were issued in advance of Tropical Storm Karen’s anticipated impact are now lifted.

Water System Chief Operating Officer Noel Hodge said Saturday that in both districts, WAPA water quality lab technicians have monitored the water system and have confirmed that the potable water being distributed by the Authority continues to meet drinking water standards.

The boil water advisories were issued as a precautionary measure in advance of Tropical Storm Karen in event that pressurization of the water distribution system was adversely impacted.
