Dear Darrell: ,
This letter is being written on behalf of myself and
wife who own property on Lake Anne (Parker) and Lake Hiawatha
in Pasco County. It is also being written on behalf of Mrs.
Margaret Sistrunk and her family who own property on Lake
Artillery in Hillsborough County.
I previously wrote to you about a well which LaMonte
Shimberg was threatening to drill for the Crippenwood II
development near our property on Lake Anne. That well was
abandoned and it was determined that LaMonte Shimberg would
drill two wells which would have a limited pumping capacity.
We are very much concerned about the location of these two
wells, one of which is located on Michigan Avenue near Lutz-
Lake Fern Road and the other is located to the west of Lake
Fishing near the vicinity of Lake Anne (Parker). We also
understand that LaMonte Shimberg has requested an increase in
capacity for these two wells which would be eight times
greater than the amount originally indicated that would be
drawn from them. This is particularly aggravating because
LaMonte Shimberg had originally stated that their water supply
would come from the Cypress Creek Wellfield. We are informed
that if the request of LaMonte Shimberg is granted, there will
be adverse effects to the lakes in the area, particularly
Lake Anne. The water table in the area would be significantly

lowered and vegetation in the vicinity of the wells would
We sincerely hope that this matter will be resolved
in such a way that the interests of many private property
owners in the area of these lakes will be protected. The
private property owners should not be damaged merely to
benefit the LaMonte Shimberg development. It may be desirable
for them to develop this property in the way they plan to
develop it, and certainly must be potentially financially
beneficial to the corporation, but this company should not
be permitted to profit to the detriment of others.
Yours very truly.,
Charlie Luckie, Jr.
