Water crisisIn May, a catastrophic water main leak in Weston, pictured, top, forced a boil-water order for about 2 million residents in Eastern Massachusetts. Bottled water flew off the shelves as residents in nearly 30 communities coped with the boil order for the next 59 hours, until repairs and tests showed clean water again flowing into the Boston area.
Pictured, bottom, a sign announcing the boil-water order was set up outside restrooms at the TD Garden.
