The investigations also cover impacts to the most highly classified “Exceptional Value” streams in Pennsylvania, most of which emanate from the triple continental divide in Potter County, where Troutman grew up on an adjacent hill. Pribanic is an Ohio native, who says the film is an educational opportunity for all communities. “Even the most seasoned fracking vet will witness new concepts.”
The film is scheduled to screen in 12 locations across New York: Wellsville, Albany, Alfred, Elmira, Woodstock, Binghamton, Ithaca, Rochester, Syracuse with three shows in New York City. New York shares all of triple divide’s watersheds with Pennsylvania. “The ecosystem is the real border, not the stateline,” Troutman said. “I’m really excited about Feb. 27 in Ithaca with FracTracker’s Karen Edelstein, who’s mapped the triple divide watersheds.”
There will be a question and answer session immediately after the film with the filmmakers and a panel from Shale Justice.
