Quabbin Okay After Trespassing Incident

Quabbin Okay After Trespassing Incident

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority has tested the Quabbin and deemed it safe after Tuesday’s trespassing incident.  Just after midnight, police found five men and two women walking near the reservoir, prompting notification to the FBI.  The seven are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore, with a few now living in Amherst and Northampton.  State police say there’s no indication there was any terrorist activity.  The Quabbin, which provides drinking water to 61 Boston-area cities and towns is off-limits to the public after dark.  The investigation continues.
