"Because drilling activities occurred at a gas well within 1,000 ft of your water supply... under section 208(c) of the Oil and Gas Act 58 P.S. §601.208(c), THE GAS WELL OPERATOR IS PRESUMED TO BE RESPONSIBLE for the degradation of your water supply".

Determination letter: ``At this time, the Department’s investigation does not indicate that gas well drilling has impacted your water supply.`` (Jennifer W. Means, PA DEP Environmental Program Manager)
