Contamination of water in the Greater Boston area
Nearly 2 million residents of the Greater Boston area lost their supply of clean drinking water when a huge underground pipe abruptly burst on Saturday May 1st around 10am.
Authorities declare a state of emergency and imposed a sweeping order to boil the untreated water for at least one minute before drinking it and using it to cook to avoid any risk of contamination.
Here are the communities affected by this boil water order.
