A study of water wells in Pike County, PA by the USGS. The study, titled "A Reconnaissance Spatial and Temporal Baseline Assessment of Methane and Inorganic Constituents in Groundwater in Bedrock Aquifers, Pike County, Pennsylvania, 2012–13," shows that an average 80% (!) of the water wells in the county have detectable amounts of naturally-occurring methane. No shale drilling is allowed in the county, so anti-drillers can't blame shale drilling for the presence of methane in the water.
