Cabot well under investigation for possibly contaminated water wells with methane to be plugged during the investigation

Cabot well under probe to be shut by Paul J. Gough, July 16, 2013, Pittsburgh Business Times
A Cabot Oil and Gas Corp. well in northeastern Pennsylvania is being shut down in the midst of a state Department of Environmental Protection investigation. The Scranton Times-Tribune reported the Costello 1 vertical well in Dimock Township will be plugged after the DEP decided it can’t be used anymore. The issue is whether methane found in two nearby water wells has been coming from the well; the DEP said it isn’t clear. The well will be plugged even as the investigation continues, the Times-Tribune said. [Emphasis added]
