ST. CROIX, U.S. Virgin Islands (May 9, 2021) – Limetree Bay Refining, LLC (“Limetree Bay” or the “Company”) continues to work with local and federal regulators to determine the source of recent odors affecting areas in the western part of St. Croix.
In response to community concerns and to support efforts by the U.S. Virgin Islands Government to identify the source of recent odor complaints, industrial hygiene specialists at Limetree Bay conducted air monitoring beginning Friday and continuing through Saturday evening at five locations immediately to the West and Northwest of the refinery. This air monitoring detected zero concentration of hydrogen sulfide, zero concentration of sulfur dioxide and zero concentration of hydrocarbons. The results of this monitoring have been shared with the Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR).
Limetree Bay remains committed to cooperating fully with the local and federal government to identify the source of the odor and will work to immediately address any findings identified from the odor investigation that are attributable to the refinery.
