Workers repairing water pipe; Boil order still in effect for 2 million 02 May 2010 (MA) Workers today began repairing the massive underground pipe that abruptly ruptured yesterday, cutting off drinking water to nearly two million people in the Boston area. Governor Deval Patrick (D) said that if the workers can successfully patch the pipe and no other leaks are discovered, clean drinking water could be flowing back into the Boston area in "days, not weeks."
