Colossal Water Main Break Western Boston Suburbs - Boil Drinking Water Ordered

May 3rd, 2010

A couple of days ago, May 1st - I believe, there was a colossal water main break in a suburb west of Boston. The main was apparently a major valve for the most of the water supply to most of the Boston suburbs. The affected Boston suburbs are now under a standing order / advisory to boil drinking water. Most all the stores immediately sold-out of bottled water inventories.

Barring any unusual circumstances such as terrorism or new equipment failure, do you suppose it was better to wait for a catastrophic failure to repair this water main system? I doubt it. (See also:
