Odessa, Florida 33556

Mr. Derrill MoAteer, Chairman
Southwest Florida Water Management Distriot
Brooksville, Florida

Dear Mr. MoAteer,

Although business matters make it impossible for me to attend the
November 12 meeting, I must state my feelings on two matters which will
oome before the board. Therefore, please enter this letter into the
record on my behalf.

The subjects of concern have been adequately stated in two letters to
you dated November 4 from Marian Lewis, President, Keystone Park Civio
Association (copies attached)* I respectfully request the board to
follow the recommendations set forth in these letters by denying the
consumptive use permit for Cosme-Odessa and rejecting the East Tarpon
Lake Well Field.

The citizens of Northwest Hillsborough County have been made to suffer
long enough for the lack of planning on the part of Pinellas County
and the city of St. petersburg. It is high time the burden of finding
and providing water to the ever growing population of Pinellas County
be placed where it belongs, on the shoulders of the elected officials
of that county. It is time to end the free ride of the past (i.e.
damaging our lakes and wells) and to force new solutions to the problem.

V truly yours,

Byron Guyer
