Large groundwater permit - Senate Bill 167

Dear Senator Reagan

You may or may not be aware of my open INQUIRY with the New Hampshire Attorney General with respect to the status of the LARGE GROUNDWATER PERMIT that was issued by the State of New Hampshire to Senter Cove Development Company Inc. (Senter), and [that] th[is] is encumbered by an Easement Deed on the water supply and distribution system, which was filed in Grafton County Registry of Deeds, and which is owned at this time by me, Jean Elizabeth Allan Sovik, the sole stockholder of Netmark International, Inc. the named claimant on the Easement Deed.

The large groundwater permit referenced above was granted in 1994. Senter named the spring water source High Birches. Netmark branded, and began to sell its retail water products under the name: High Birches Mountain Spring Water. The permit allowed Senter, and by extension Netmark International to extract up to 1 million gallons of spring water daily.

In 1997, shortly after I testified as a witness for the prosecution in a related Organized Crime case, Senter's pump house was sabotaged. The crime was reported, and the damage was fixed. Then on 9/11/97 Senter's main production bore hole and several monitoring wells were sabotaged with a cocktail of chemicals to include heavy metals and other carcinogens. If you have an interest in reading the in depth details about this case, you can go to and search under High Birches Springs. To learn more about my status request you can google "site:NHJUSTICE.NET attorney general". Most if not all my correspondence to the New Hampshire Attorney General can be located there. (Google "site:NHJUSTICE.NET attorney general" will give you a gist of our many prior filings. Also to extend the search, Google "site:NHJUSTICE.NET governor".)

When you consider your pending legislation, please be advised that Senter's large groundwater permit would be grandfathered under the new legislation, considering that the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office makes a long awaited determination as to Senter and Netmark International's claim of ownership.

If you have any follow up questions you can reach me by email at the above address.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Jean, Sorry to hear of your sabotage problem and consequent large dollar losses. What are you asking for, if anything?

Thank you for your prompt response. I am just asking for a light to be shined on the issue of groundwater extraction permits, in general, and the saga of High Birches that has gone on far too long.

Water law is an issue that is very dear to my family, and we have suffered greatly for the stand that we have taken that water is a right to life, and that it should not become a commodity to be traded on the futures market. If you read our tale of woe on you will understand what a dear price we have paid for our belief ... It has been said that sunshine is the best disinfectant ... so we will continue to post online, and will follow your bill with great interest.

There has been far too much fraud and crimes connected to the State's policies of granting and taking large ground water permits ... now is the time for the sun to shine.
