We object to the issuance of an. such cer t.i that will let
the Ci:t of St. Petersburg do any more pumping in the Cosme-
Odessa well field. Sense the r'iny season Is just about over
and wt'. the continued pumpinr of St. Petersburg, Lake Calm's
water level will dr rapidly. At this time it is at its
normal le-el, do t: the excessive smnount of rain this year.
The sr-1ns that used to fe-d Lake Calm are no more, since
St. Petersburg's excessive pumning in the Cosme-Odessa well
field Increased in -:e last few years even before Swift Mud
was ever organized.

There --re three wells across tre road from our home along
Gunn '-'hway. With the continued pur-lInr from, these wells
the water level will again this year, go down far enough that
we have no water front property, as someone else owns the
property between our property ed.e and the water. Even though
we pay hi=h taxes for water front property, our taxes have
more tran doubled with this 100% assessment on property.
Continued -isuse of this water will lead to more trouble
with cur wells whic- many of us have already had. Since we
have -: pay these excessive property taxes, we would like
very x uih to see that the lake level remains et the level i-
wris <-.ere bought ~i --s property, concedin+ g only to the
elements of nature.
