Six years into a natural gas boom, Pennsylvania has for the first time released details of 243 cases in which companies prospecting for oil or gas were found by state regulators to have contaminated private drinking water wells.
The Department of Environmental Protection on Thursday posted online links to the documents after the agency conducted a "thorough review" of paper files stored among its regional offices.
DEP didn't immediately issue a statement with the online release, but posted the links on the same day that seven environmental groups sent a letter urging the agency to heed the auditor general's 29 recommendations for improvement.
A drilling boom that took off in 2008 has made the Marcellus the most productive natural gas field in the nation, and more than 6,000 shale gas wells have been drilled.

The ACLU had asked the court to allow voters who couldn't make it to the polls on Election Day to cast ballots.
"While our clients are disappointed that they will not be able to cast ballots in the primary election, the ACLU will continue its work to ensure that every person has an equal opportunity to vote - even when a natural disaster strikes - and we look forward to working with the Legislature to prevent these kinds of situations in the future," ACLU spokeswoman Kit Grant said in a statement.
The court also dismissed a separate complaint from a group of Big Island voters who disputed the election, saying they were not the proper parties to challenge the outcome, and that they had failed to demonstrate errors or problems that would have changed the results.
