Commissioner Jean-Pierre L. Oriol of the Department of Planning and Natural Resources informs the public that derelict vessel removals at Krum Bay on St. Thomas have commenced this week and will continue for another two months.

All vessels entering the area are instructed to proceed with caution due to heavy equipment in use. Any vessel tied to any of the derelict barges slated to be removed should relocate no later than Tuesday afternoon.
For any questions regarding the project, please contact K. Edwards at
