HOME I ESCAPE I RETREAT I PARADISE
Here are some plans for establishing infrastructure on the island.
A protected cove on the south shore near the beach provides an ideal location for a dock, with level land perfect for a shaded gazebo, dock house, and other facilities. Water depth will accommodate boats of up to 50-60 feet
There are several options for providing power to the island, including an underground power line from St. Thomas, diesel generators, and/or environmentally sensitive solar or wind power options.
A satellite system would support communication needs on the island, including cable television, internet access and a telephone system.
In addition to collection and treatment of freshwater rainfall, a centralized reverse-osmosis desalination system would provide for on-island water production and treatment, with distribution via water truck or underground water lines.
Individual septic systems (such as environmentally sensitive “constructed wetland” systems using plants as filters) would provide for sewage treatment and individual irrigation needs.
Roadways and on-island transportation
To minimize environmental and aesthetic impacts, roadways would be carefully designed and made of 8 to 10 feet wide paved concrete to support on-island transportation via all-terrain golf-cart type vehicles (battery or electric powered).
