Is it true that drilling/fracking has resulted in Methane being present in drinking water?

Shallow natural gas — or methane — has historically been, and continues to be, present underground across Pennsylvania. This methane, in many cases, has migrated for generations naturally into private water wells. In fact, a recent analysis by researchers at the Pennsylvania State University Extension determines that upwards of 25 percent of Pennsylvania’s water wells contain naturally-occurring levels of methane.
