Alameda’s Doug Linney Second Largest Water User on EBMUD Board

The East Bay Express is reporting that Alameda resident, EBMUD board member and SunCal consultant Doug Linney is the second biggest water user on EBMUD’s board of directors.

According to the Express, Linney’s Alameda house consumes about 164,000 gallons of water per year:

The second largest user on the board is president Doug Linney, who lives in Alameda, and consumed about 448 gallons of water a day from 2000 to 2008, or about 164,000 gallons a year. In contrast to Coleman, Linney said at the East Bay MUD board meeting last week that he is strongly leaning toward opposing the [Pardee Reservoir expansion] dam when it comes up for an official vote in October. He also questioned several of the assertions by East Bay MUD staff about why the agency needs the dam. In addition, he has expressed support in the past for steeper water rates for heavy water users.

Linney’s political consulting firm was paid more than $33,000 by SunCal in the first six months of this year, according to SunCal FPPC filings. Linney confirmed to the East Bay Express months ago that he was a paid consultant with SunCal, when the Express published an article on the controversial proposed expansion of the Pardee Reservoir.
