BELCHERTOWN, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts state police say they and the FBI are investigating a trespassing incident at the Quabbin Reservoir but have no evidence of terrorism.
    
The central Massachusetts reservoir supplies drinking water to Boston.
    
State Police spokesman David Procopio says Tuesday night that a trooper saw two cars parked at a reservoir park entrance at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, then saw five young men and two young women walking toward them from the reservoir.
    
Procopio said they are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore with addresses in Amherst, Cambridge, Sunderland and Northampton, and New York City. He said law enforcement databases show no warrants, detainers or advisories on them.
    
The men told police they are recently graduated chemical engineers curious about the reservoir.
    
Procopio said they will be summoned to court later on trespassing charges.
