JOST VAN DYKE, VI – Residents of Jost van Dyke in the Virgin Islands (VI), should by the end of the month, begin receiving a more stable supply of potable water, since the Ministry for Communications and Works, is gearing to commission the spanking new reservoir which is nearing completion.

At least this is according to Minister for Communication and Works, Honourable Mark H. Vanterpool (R4), who in providing answers to enquiries in the House of Assembly (HoA) by Melvin M. Turnbull (R2) aka Mitch, disclosed that “the final connections are now being done and should be completed by the end of this month.”

Commissioned 

The reservoir, he said, “will then be commissioned.” The House had met on Tuesday, January 15, 2019.

The D2 Representative had enquired through a formal question on the Order Paper, “when works will be completed on the rebuilding of the Reservoir on Jost van Dyke to supply water on a consistent basis, seeing that they have had to go without potable water for weeks and even months at a time prior to and after the passages of the storms of 2017.”

He sought to also find out, “If the works have been completed, what else is needed to ensure that water is received by residents daily and when will it be supplied.”

Hon Turnbull, along with other legislators have since been informed that the remaining works to be had at the Reservoir include the re-routing the pumping main from the temporary storage facility to the new reservoir; construction of protective manholes for new valves; upgrading and installation of power supply to one of the two water pumps and repairing a part of the main distribution water main.
