Quabbin Reservoir Tests Normal After Trespassing

The Quabbin Reservoir, New Salem (from Cara)BELCHERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — State officials say testing done at the Quabbin Reservoir showed no abnormalities after seven people were seen at a reservoir park entrance late at night.

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority said Wednesday that water quality samples all came back normal after the alleged trespassing incident.

State police spokesman David Procopio said a trooper saw two cars parked at a reservoir park entrance at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, then saw five young men and two young women walking toward them from the reservoir.  Procopio said the men told police they recently graduated from chemical engineering programs and were curious about the reservoir.

Procopio said they are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore with addresses in Amherst, Cambridge, Sunderland and Northampton, and New York City. He said law enforcement databases show no warrants, detainers or advisories on them.
