Anyone see any signs of power restoration progress on STX lately? They seemed to be reporting steady progress up until midle of last week. Last week they claimed crews continued work on a double circuit for Feeders 6A and 6B from the Richmond Power Plant toward Club St. Croix and 5 pts with a goal of having power restored up to 5 pts by the weekend but I guess that didn't happen. Oh boy, that's about a half mile depending on where the lines are run. They originally said they only needed to plant 7 poles for that work. They also claimed crews completed the planting of replacement poles up to the Hannah’s Rest intersection. They were off Friday afternoon for the funeral of the lineman who died on STT. Supposedly a lot of material was shipped to STX after Irma that's probably left them short on STX, at least initially.
They reported two weeks ago on bringing 240 linemen from 4 mainland utility companies and equipment into the territory to split among islands implying they were to start arriving by now and into the middle of the month. Last week they said they held a planning meeting with officials of one company map out the work for their crews due to arrive mid-month.
WAPA hasn't really reported on their progress on completing the damage assessment much less published the recovery plan/schedule they promised.
