Save Our Groundwater (SOG) is a New Hampshire Seacoast-based citizens action organization dedicated to protecting water in the public trust. We formed in 2001 in response to a bottled water company’s application to take more than 400,000 gallons/day from the aquifer underlying our rural communities; not one drop was ever bottled and the company’s state permit for mining the water expired July 1, 2014. Join us in celebrating¬† thirteen years of protecting our water–sign up for our email updates by writing to SOG at saveourgroundwater [at] gmail [dot] com and help the movement grow by becoming a member.
