Place water in a large boiler pot. Add all ingredients except shrimp, corn and potatoes. Cover and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and boil for 15 to 20 minutes. Add sausage and corn to the pot and continue to boil for another 10 minutes. Add shrimp and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
