That should be easy to prove, if "they" are willing to actually admit those findings.
Take a look at this; Posted in Augest of 2012.
The lake is lovely, the town is quaint and the people are nice. It one of the sites that we're worried
about as it's in the Marcellus Shale play. Drilling may disturb the natural environment before long, so get
here while you can. Visited August 2012
The latest plans to drill up to 30,000 more wells throughout the Marcellus Shale is drawing the ire of the Eagles Mere community, an idyllic
Pennsylvania vacation town. What makes Eagle Mere a bastion for anti-drilling support is that the landowners there are rather well-to-do, so they
aren't as susceptible to gas industry money. "There are some things that are just not worth risking," Bob Spahr, a year-round resident of Eagles Mere
told Reuters. Many townsfolk have been offered up to $2,500 an acre to lease their land for natural gas drilling, but have stood resolutely against
leasing the area for drilling. The Eagles Mere Association — which owns over 200 acres surrounding the area lake — recently turned down an offer
from Chesapeake Energy Corp. to expand their fracking operations into the town.
Here is a map of all known fracking sites in PA. HOLY #!.
And here is the company that runs the Sullivan site.
"Shirk Unit A 1H
Operated by Chief Oil & Gas Llc

I have been fishing for 25 years and I can tell you from first hand experience that if Sunfish are dying, I highly doubt it is from lack of "oxygen".
I have 100's of Sunfish I use for my fish emulsion farm. Sunfish can go from 90degree water ponds to almost freezing water without getting shock and I
have witnessed a Sunfish out of water for 25 minutes before flipping back into the water to swim off like it was never out of the water. So lack of
oxygen? Don't think so. Temperature wise for bass and trout, they would need a INSTANT cool down of 20 degrees or more to suffer "shock" from water
temperature changes. This is true for most fish.
Ever win a gold fish at a fair, bring it home and put it in a fresh bowl of water you just poured, just for
the fish to die a few minutes later? That is shock from water temp change.
I will put my bets on fracking. The nearest fracking site to Eagles Mere Lake is only 3Miles away in Sullivan County and is below the lake level. They
could have easily broken shale fragments that have gasses trapped in them that could also easily follow rock fissures straight to the lake. Lakes have
water tables below them...Water that is trapped in shale rock under the lake can mix with forced shale evac of gases to cause this kind of "die-off".
I tried fixing the spacing problem you get from copy and pasting from notepad to the site....last try,sorry for the hard read.
