2018 POTABLE WATER & WASTEWATER SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS 

The Coral Bay Community Council has completed a grant awarded by the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Utilities Service (USDA RUS), to implement recommendations from the 2015 Coral Bay Potable Water Supply and Wastewater Treatment Plans authored by Coral Bay Community Council. The Advancing Onsite Wastewater Treatment in the USVI: An Evaluation of Current Usage and Emerging Technologies on St. John, USVI (Phase I) Report summarizes our research findings from this project.

This project was to:

  • Understand the performance and management practices of current and new / alternative potable water supply and onsite wastewater treatment systems (OSDS) in Coral Bay, St. John
  • Assist residents with potable water testing and technical and operational issues
  • Promote drinking water treatment and wastewater treatment systems best management practices.

On July 26, CBCC and DPNR co-hosted a Potable Water Supply & Wastewater Systems Professional Workshop focusing on best management practices, technologies and updates for industry professionals in the USVI. The following day, CBCC hosted a workshop providing residents with information about their septic tanks and onsite wastewater treatment systems and arranged for professional consultations at their home or business that afternoon.

2015 WATER  SUPPLY & WASTEWATER SYSTEMS PLANS

The Water Supply and Wastewater Treatment Planning project is a planning activity, undertaken in 2013-2015, designed to analyze the future capacity for potable water supply and wastewater treatment in Coral Bay, and provide valuable guidance to residents. The plan documents outline existing and future demands for water supply and wastewater treatment, surface and groundwater resources, and options for Coral Bay’s current and future water supply and wastewater treatment that will respect the environment.
