Re: “Kaplan, Bates, deHaan, and Roy, Plus No on 8

EBMUD's board adopted a rationing plan based on past usage that punishes customers who had already implemented water conservation practices. Rather than giving everyone an equal per-capita ration, the board's plan rewards water wasters with significantly higher allocations. The plan rewards those who've made lifestyle choices, such as the maintenance of grass lawns, that unnecessarily use scarce water resources. Worst of all, the rationing plan is written in terms a fictional gallon-per-day unit that neither EBMUD meters nor bills can accurately state (both are measured in 748-gallon units).

It's clear that the drought required action from the board, but the action they chose was unfair to conservation-practicing customers.
