Methane reported in 2 northern Pa. water wells

CANTON, Pa. (AP) — State environmental regulators say methane had to be vented from a pair of private drinking wells near a northern Pennsylvania natural gas drilling well.

The Department of Environmental Protection says gas bubbling has also been reported in wetlands near the homes in LeRoy Township, Bradford County.

The DEP says the source of the methane hasn’t been determined but driller Chesapeake Energy is screening all private wells within 2,500 feet of its Morse drilling pad.

The complaint was first made to DEP on Saturday.
