Sewage leak

Sewage flows from a drain into the street near the car ferry entrance in Cruz Bay, St John, recently. It is a problem that residents say has gone on for years.

Any passerby would have had a hard time ignoring the stench coming from an overflowing drain cover spewing sewage into the street near the Cruz Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant on St. John on a recent afternoon.

People traveling to and from the car ferry drove through the puddles of wastewater collecting in the street and some pedestrians were forced to tiptoe through it, holding their noses.
