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:
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 doesnt appear anyone tried to tamper with the water supply and there does not appear to be any contamination or changes in water quality.....

Nothing to see here...
” A real chief executive would call out the National Guard. “
This one will summon the Muslim Brotherhood.
Let’s just hope it was a right wing tea party person, not one of those Religion Of Peace people. /sarcasm
My, my, my.
Prolly just a group of engineering students from the middle east who wanted to check things out and made a field trip....in the middle of the night.
Three (3) were cut.
This was another planned operation.
al Qaeda? or Obama-Holder?
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.
” ...in the middle of the night.”
with a briefcase nuke....
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.
how does one, determine if water has been tampered with....
Could not have happened to a more wonderful city.
Not at the Quabbin; it’s in Framingham... must be one of the linked aqueducts between Boston and the Quabbin out west.
>>> A real chief executive would call out the National Guard.
This one will summon the Muslim Brotherhood.<<<
No need. Looks to me they’ve already been there!
No worries. The State Department says there are no active terror cells here. Al Qaeda, that is. We only have Tea Party terror cells.
This is the same place that 9 Saudis were arrested looking the place over and let go a month ago?
Seems like more than one Muslim has a problem with Boston........
Just look for dead bodies....thousands of them.If not more.
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.
Mumbles had the police dust for prints...
No, but the water supplies the same city.
SOMEBODY HATES THESE BOSTONIANS! /the jerk
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’ll bet they’ll never be found.
Don't forget military veterans.I'm kinda proud that Osama Obama considers me a potential domestic terrorist for a dozen different reasons...military vet,pro Second Amendment,pro life,Christian,etc,etc,etc.
Where the three Muslim student apprehended recently leaving a forest trail leading to the main reservoir out doing more “research?”
SOMEBODY HATES THESE BOSTONIANS! /the jerk
Boston Tea Party?
Ten bucks says it’s Penguin fans...or Blackhawk fans.
Beat me to it.
Here is part of the problem:
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.
I'm glad the officials can see bacteria and poisons with their eyes........
“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.
How about some nasty virus created in a lab?
What does "tampered with" drinking water look like? Obviously officials must know, right?
He certainly did!
Now to go find that article.... here ya go ... http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/05/14/7-cited-for-trespassing-at-quabbin-reservoir-patrols-stepped-up-across-state/
...or Yankees fans?.........
Winner, winner, chicken diner.
Yeah, we don’t know which...but one will be hit. This sucks.
IIRC they were at the Quabbin reservoir near Bealchertown, which is near Springfield.
Ever been to a public swimming pool when it's "Teach the elementary kids to swim day"?
” ..military vet,pro Second Amendment,pro life,Christian,etc”
Man! The IRS is gonna audit you back to the fetus!
“doesnt 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”?
Yeah, some right-wing nut jobs angry at the people of Mass for giving us the Kennedys /sarc
