Work on the long awaited modern tertiary sewerage treatment project for the Cane Garden Bay community is said to be underway.

Minister for Transportation, Works and Utilities, Honourable Kye M. Rymer said the construction phase of the project is expected to last nine (9) months, or until June 2022.  “I would like to thank the residents of the Cane Garden Bay community for their patience and understanding during this critical upgrade that will benefit the community,” he said.

Honourable Rymer at a recent sitting of the House of Assembly stated that his ministry was prioritising the Cane Garden Bay and East End communities for a “comprehensive overhaul and completion of the sewerage system”.

“The Cane Garden Bay Sewerage Project is being undertaken in two phases.” Honourable Rymer said at the time, adding, “The project will yield a new Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) that will treat all sewerage within the Cane Garden Bay area.  The plant that was on site in Cane Garden Bay was in service from 1994.”

The Ministry of Transportation, Works and Utilities is dedicated to ensuring the continued development and maintenance of public infrastructure in keeping with international standards so that public utilities are reliable and affordable in support of an enhanced community life for every resident and visitor in the Virgin Islands.
