No problems detected with Quabbin water

After seven people allegedly trespassed at Quabbin ­Reservoir, which supplies much of Boston’s drinking ­water, State Police increased their scrutiny of the vast water supply.

So far, there is no evidence that the five men and two women found outside the reservoir just after midnight Tuesday were planning sabotage, but State Police have ordered troopers to patrol the water source more frequently, as well as all other state water supply facilities such as Spot Pond, Weston, and Wachusett reservoirs and the Deer Island treatment facility, said David Procopio, State Police spokesman.
