The wastewater system for the Jalousie Plantation (now known as “Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort”) on the island
of St. Lucia was destroyed by Hurricane Tomas in October, 2010. This Caribbean hotel destination desperately
needed an emergency solution — needed to have a new system designed, built, shipped, installed, and functioning
before the busy Christmas tourist season.
After initial contact with the resort’s engineer on November 18, an Orenco® AdvanTex® AX-Mobile Treatment
System was custom-built for the resort and shipped to the site. Orenco employees flew to St. Lucia for the installation,
and the system was up-and-running in four weeks from initial contact, just in time for Christmas holiday
guests. The Orenco tank and treatment unit for this temporary, emergency solution will be relocated to become
part of the resort’s permanent wastewater solution in the future.
