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.
