Quabbin 7: Quabbin Reservoir – When’s the Court Date? Locks Cut to Boston Water Supply

On May 14th seven chemical engineers from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore we caught trespassing – about midnight – at the Quabbin Reservoir which provides public water to the Boston area. According to officials, the only crime committed by the five men and two women, the Quabbin 7, was trespassing (at midnight) in a restricted area. The group, all said to be in the U.S. legally, reside in five different cities. They were allowed to go free and will be “summoned” for a court date. Today there is news that three padlocks were cut at different points of entry, about one-half mile apart, and referred to as three “hatches” at the Hultman Aqueduct which supplies drinking water to the greater Boston area. A fourth lock was tampered with. I find no news sources talking about a court date for the Quabbin 7. Very odd. If you’ve seen evidence of a court date or appearance, let me know. They should have been before a judge by now.

After both incidents, the seven trespassers and finding the locks cuts, water supplies were checked for safety and the public was assured their water is safe. Who are these Arab Chemical Engineers and have they been to court? Will they ever be summoned? If they are summoned, will they show up? Read more at Atlas Shrugs.

    Maggie, I am no longer receiving your daily column, although I thought I signed up for it properly. Help!

    • Barbara, thanks so much for letting me know. I had to change providers so that quotations would show properly. My apologies – I have to ask you to add your email address again. Two ways to do it: 1) in my blog’s right-hand sidebar, second item from the top is a new notice. It needs only your email address, or you can go to the post about it, click “read more” and a box will be there to enter your email.

      I’m so sorry to ask you to do this again. I think you’ll like the new format, and thank you so much for noticing 🙂

  • If they had the words “TEA Party” in their group name they would of been caught three years ago.
