Limetree Bay Announces Plan to Reinstate Air Monitoring Program
ST. CROIX, U.S. Virgin Islands (May 5, 2021) – Limetree Bay Energy (“Limetree Bay” or the “Company”) today announced that the Company has voluntarily agreed to reinstate the facility’s [legacy] ambient air monitoring program.
“Limetree Bay has voluntarily agreed to reactivate the five area monitors that were put in place prior to our ownership of the refinery to detect sulfur dioxide in ambient air,” said Jeff Rinker, Limetree Bay CEO. “Over the last several weeks, our leadership team has met with community leaders, and government officials, including the EPA. While Limetree Bay is not required to perform this air monitoring under our existing permits, we are committed to being a responsible part of the St. Croix community and believe this investment will help build trust in our operations.”
“I am pleased that Limetree Bay responded to the Government’s request to activate the area monitors, which will provide further assurance to the local community about their air quality,” stated Gov. Albert Bryan, Jr. “Working together, we can assure the health of our people and the economic viability of our territory.”
There are five monitoring stations across St. Croix, and Limetree Bay will initiate their reinstatement immediately. The Company will provide additional information on the timeline to repair and restore the air monitors, once a full assessment of their condition is complete.
