"Tells the powerful personal stories of people dealing with the terrible impacts of fracking on their drinking water resources — all backed up by thousands of pages of documents uncovered by the filmmakers."
Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food and Water Watch, Author, Frackopoly: The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment


"Shows powerfully that the harms to drinking water continue, that regulation still does not perform its function, and that more of the same can be expected, short of strong political intervention at the state and federal levels. There are now only about 11,000 shale gas wells in Pennsylvania. At least 50,000 more are planned, so TRIPLE DIVIDE is just-in-time education, a warning, and, once again, a call to action to accurately assess all the real costs of shale gas to Pennsylvanians and everybody downstream of the triple divide — yes, all of us."
Dr. Anthony Ingraffea, Professor Emeritus of Engineering, Cornell University, Founder and past President, Physicians, Scientists and Engineers for Healthy Energy


"I was unaware of the Public Herald's extensive investigation into over 9,000 cases of potential water contamination from hydraulic fracturing in Pennsylvania. The film's fanciful artwork helps convey complex processes and geography in easy-to-grasp images. Especially revealing was the documentation of a drilling company's violation of the DEP rules in burying waste pits that may have contaminated a family's water source, and how the complaints about the well were not documented in the DEP file, essentially hidden from public agency records."
K.K. DuVivier, Professor of Law, University of Denver, Author, The Renewable Energy Reader and Energy Law Basics


"A timely cautionary documentary about the fracking industry in Pennsylvania. Clean water is the star of this film. The toxic impact of the fracking industry is the villain."
Julie Dermansky, DeSmog Blog


"Timely...Rewarding and thought-provoking to those seeking more hard information about the fracking controversy."
Salem Weekly


"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
