ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Workers from the Water and Sewerage Department were seen executing repairs to what was described as the main sewerage pump line along Waterfront Drive in the vicinity of the Governor’s Office today, May 7, 2014.

The full extent of the damaged line is unclear at this time but reports indicate that that the damage became apparent sometime this week.

A release issued by the Department urged members of the public to exercise caution when using the roadway and adhere to all road signs/traffic signals in an effort to ensure public safety.

Several attempts to contact Director of the Water and Sewerage Department, Ms Perline Scatliffe-Leonard to ascertain the full extent of the damaged line, proved unsuccessful up to post time.

Road users were further asked to ‘exercise extreme caution when traversing this area’. The works are expected to be completed by 6:00PM today.

    If the residents of the BVI will comply with NOT flushing and throwing certain items in our sewer lines, they will never be blocked and situations as such will occur less. But NOOOOOOO! yall flushing Condoms, pouring old oils and grease down the drain. I was most present when they cleared one of these sewer lines sometime back. I was surprised at the cans, clothes, condoms, wigs and other hair, blocks of fats/greas/oils clogged together, shoes, plastic bags and bottles. you name it, it came up from OUR sewer. STOP blaming WSD workers man. Its the nastiness of US the people. Keep OUR sewer line clear. Dont blame the WSD staff, they are NOT the problem. They ARE the solution
