This award-winning "bombshell" documentary covers the impact of fracking in one of the country's most pristine watersheds. With exclusive interviews from oil and gas industry leaders, independent experts and impacted residents, TRIPLE DIVIDE [REDACTED] covers five years (2011 - 2016) of cradle-to-grave investigations that reveal how regulators and industry keep water contamination covered up.

The documentary's title pays homage to one of only four Triple Continental Divides in North America, a place that provides drinking water to millions of Americans, signaling to the audience that everything, and everyone, is downstream from shale gas extraction.
Award-winning actor Mark Ruffalo co-narrates this film by Public Herald, an investigative news nonprofit co-founded by journalists/directors Joshua Pribanic and Melissa Troutman. 
"Triple Divide gives you the round-up of shale gas and oil production as it plays out day-by-day in Pennsylvania's rural shale-patch communities. What sets it apart from other fracking documentaries is that it shows how we are all impacted by it - through our shared dependence on clean water. We all also share a responsibility to protect this precious resource and should demand the same accountability from our public and elected officials." - Dr. Tanja Srebotnjak, Director, Hixon Center for Sustainable Environmental Design, Harvey Mudd College
