Gateway Pundit ^ | June 4, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Three padlocks were cut to the Boston water supply aqueduct today.

Officials say the drinking water does not look to have been tampered with.

CBS Local reported:

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

The Global Dispatch reported:

The padlocks to hatches of an aqueduct outside of Boston that supplies drinking water to the metropolitan area were found cut Monday, leading to local concerns after there was a trespassing incident.

Officials say the drinking water does not appear to have been tampered with.

The CBS affiliate is reporting the details, noting that three padlocks were cut from separate access hatches located at approximately half-mile intervals along the aqueduct. Police say there is evidence of an attempt to cut a fourth lock.

State Police are investigating, though they say “there is no evidence of any crime other than vandalism.”

The MWRA says it doesn’t appear anyone tried to tamper with the water supply and there does not appear to be any contamination or changes in water quality.....

If they’re talking about Quabbin Resevoir (the main source of Boston’s drinking water) there was a security incident there just a few weeks ago.Imagine a group of 9th Century knuckledragging pig fornicators...like a dozen Major Hassans...getting access to the drinking water supply of a major Western city...here,in Europe,Japan,etc.

So, all authorities have to do is go back to those muslimes caught messing with the Quabbin a few weeks ago at 2 AM (students, doing some chemical research no doubt), and we’ll get somewhere....

oh, wait... now I remember, those muslimes were not questioned and were just let go.

Not at the Quabbin; it’s in Framingham... must be one of the linked aqueducts between Boston and the Quabbin out west.

Framingham, the Hultman Aquaduct, downstream of the big filtration plant in Marlboro. Way way downstream and far away from Quabbin, but you gotta connect the dots here.

Who else remembers the SIX, (I believe), recently bio-chemical engineers who just happened to be checking out that reservoir late at night around a month ago?

Now to go find that article....

No. They will throw in mutagens and carcinogens
that DHS will not detect.

The people in charge are idiots to leave this open
for contamination OVER AND OVER by foreign nationals,
and to advertise that attacking has no risk
(and EVEN if caught, Holder and the might of the
criminal DO”J” will defend any terrorist, just
like all the past murderers and terrorists).

I do remember that stop. They let them go that night.

Seems we have to learn some things the hard way.

How about armed guards for the next few years and I would be looking at buying bottled water today in that area served by this reservoir.

“who just happened to be checking out that reservoir”

This is 30 or 40 miles away, in Framingham, not Belchertown. Still the Boston water supply, though.

“doesn’t appear anyone tried to tamper with the water supply”

Is this about the most idiotic comment you could make, or what? How would tossing a container of some contaminant into the water be “apparent”?
