The water patrol is cracking the whip.
Kylie Jenner and Tyga are reportedly among other stars who have been cited for wasting water, according to The Hollywood Reporter, who obtained documents of violators in 24-7 water patrol inspections during the month of June.
According to the report, the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District hired a private security firm to help it identify and penalize local H20 lawbreakers around the clock in order to finally meet its state-mandated goal of 36 percent reduction over a three-year period by next February.
The agency's 122-square-mile territory covers a stretch of Los Angeles County towns just inland of the Malibu coastline, from Calabasas and Hidden Hills up through Agoura Hills and Westlake Village.
Jenner, who recently moved into a $2.7 million, 5,000-square-foot mansion in Calabasas' gated Oaks community, as well as her rapper beau, who rents a $10.2 million, 12,000-square-foot Tuscan villa a few blocks away were two of many names that popped up during the search.
David Hasselhoff, Dr. Dre and Denise Richards are other famous names facing hot water right now (pun intended).
The price tag on these citations range depending on the amount of tickets a violator has received. According to the report, the first violation gets you a $100 fine, which rises to $500 for a fourth offense, and termination of service after the fifth transgression (but that has yet to happen to anyone).
However, it seems as though there could be a lot of violations to come. Residents are allowed only 15-minute outdoor water use two days a week, with no runoff ending up in the street or on adjacent properties. And with these luxurious houses which include lavish gardens, that could be a problem.
