Gas-industry and environmental advocates are butting heads again in a PA village at the center of the hydro-fracking debate

Cabot Oil and Gas Corp. has released a statement this week after learning federal scientists are collecting water and air samples from nearly 25 homes in Dimock.  The company insists the water "does not pose a threat to human health and the environment."

Some residents of the village, nearly 30 miles northwest of Scranton, continue to blame the driller for infecting their drinking water.

Dimock was the site of a water contamination incident resulting from high-volume hydro-fracking to extract natural gas. The town was featured in A 2010 documentary called "Gasland."
