Update 5/1/10 5:52pm: This story’s gotten way bigger — and not just because TuftsLife used massive print to deliver the new message. Y’all need to boil your water now. Go to our new post for the latest info.
Excerpt from a Tufts campus-wide e-mail:
The Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) has notified Tufts University officials of a water leak on a major pipe that could potentially interrupt water service to several communities, including the Tufts University Medford/Somerville campus.
MWRA asks that people stop using water for the next few hours.
Is it bad that my first thought was “I hope this isn’t a repeat of last semester’s water problem hoax“? But at least this time, Tufts e-mailed us on the official Announcements thread, rather than an e-mail from RAs that got forwarded from Dining Services via ResLife. So it’s probably legit. Probably.
