Dear Buddy:

I've been slow in responding to your letter of January 19, 1970 partly
because of a burden of other more pressing problems, but chiefly be-
cause I wanted to apply some experimental calculations to St. Peters-
burg's Pasco County well-field area and needed the large-scale map
that the U. S. Geological Survey was preparing for us for plotting pur-
poses. The map arrived yesterday and I've already begun working on
this problem.

I hope to be able to develop some idea of drawdowns to be expected at
the well-field perimeter boundaries and also out to distances up to at
least two miles from each pumping well. Once we know about what
we can expect at any point along the well-field boundary or within the
cone-of-depression that will surround the well field out to about a
two-mile distance, we'll be in a much better position to make a try at
defining our method of determining "mean low water" in accordance
with Section 373. 081 (10), Florida Statutes.

Also, by means of this letter with a carbon copy to Joe Rosenshein,
I wish to thank you and him for your helpful ideas already received.
This is an extremely complex problem and one that I wish to have
rather thoroughly thought out before submittal of a plan for approval
by our Board of Governors. I'll be getting in touch with both of you
on this as soon as possible.

Very sincerely yours,

Garald G. Parker
Chief Hydrologist
